I can't do that it says I do not have the right administrative priviliges. Is there another way to edit and save it?

OK so I did that and I pressed ALT+CTRL+BACKSPACE and beryl worked!! But, when I restarted my computer the same old x server error came up and i was back to square one. Any ideas how to fix that?

Thanks so much for all your help so far I learned so much from you.

I didn't install any updates after beryl worked. However I did install other beryl features from Synaptic. I did the update that was in the beryl setup and that was about it.

Thanks

I want you to start back at Post #87 and continue until you get beryl working (like it was before you restarted). During those instructions, make special care that you do not install ANY updates for ANYTHING.
