Spark 2.5.1 won''t display with XGL / Beryl

I rolled back to 2.0.5 because it works just fine. I’'m on Ubuntu 6.10 with Beryl.

All spark windows from the contact list to pop-up messages are just plain blank with 2.5.1. You can’‘t see who to talk to, much less actually carry on a conversation unless it’'s all psychic.

with XGL, use this command:

DISPLAY=:0.0 ./Spark

this allows Spark to show up. Not 100% thought. I use a similar command for Google-earth.

To get it Spark (2.5.4) to work with Beryl on Fedora 7:

Install OpenMotif

ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/www-ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/mirror/fedora/linu x/planetccrma/7/i386/openmotif-2.3.0-0.3.fc7.ccrma.i386.rpm

Do:

export AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit

Add this to your profile:

export AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit

Run Spark!

The only thing you’'ll need to change for your distro is where to get OpenMotif.
