Hi, Rodolfo,

   Somehow you have to export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 before you start
Mathematica. This causes no problems (for me anyway) when I'm NOT using
Beryl, so I've just put a tiny script in "/usr/local/bin/Mathematica":



sh /my/path/to/the/Mathematica/executable

as I use bash.

   Hope this helps!
