I remember having this problem when I first installed it. Now, if I
could just remember how I fixed it...
Basically, the way it's supposed to work is beryl-kde.desktop gets
read by KDM. Here, it calls /usr/bin/startkde with $DESKTOP_SESSION
environment variable set to beryl-kde. In beryl.sh, we check whether
this environment variable is set to this, and if yes, calls
What we now have to check is what $DESKTOP_SESSION is set to and whether
beryl.sh is called at all.
So, try this.
below the #!/bin/sh (and above the if statement) add the following line
echo $DESKTOP_SESSION >> /tmp/log
Save the file, and log out and log back in. A log file has been created
in /tmp. Look at the file and tell me what it says.
It should say beryl-kde, but if it says something else, let me know.
You can also try to see if beryl-manager is called at all by commenting
out the if statements. Add a # in the beginning of the if and fi line
