I pulled this off the post you made on Ubuntuforums, so I'll reply here:

Someone help please.
How were you starting Beryl? Did you have XGL installed, and did you load it by choosing it from the Sessions screen in GDM?
What do you get if you run
If you're running XGL, it should give you something similar to "Xgl :1 -fullscreen -ac -br -accel xv:pbuffer -accel glx:pbuffer" as an output, otherwise, if it's just a normal Xserver, it'll probably give you X or Xorg
Here's what I get when I run the command, and mine works:
[email protected]:~$ ps -ef|grep X
root 5205 5204 0 16:00 tty7 00:00:09 /usr/bin/X :0 -br -audit 0 -auth /var/lib/gdm/:0.Xauth -nolisten tcp vt7
blahages 5681 5637 2 16:00 ? 00:05:22 Xgl :1 -fullscreen -ac -br -accel xv:pbuffer -accel glx:pbuffer
blahages 13907 13874 0 20:12 pts/0 00:00:00 grep X
Also, does it work again if you change the color depth back to whatever it was set to before, as opposed to 24 bit?
