Do you want all durations of beams to be whole bar beams?  If so, simply do

\set beatStructure = #'(8)

Do you want only the tuplets to have whole bar beams, then you'll need to
set beamExceptions.  Probably something like

\set beamExceptions = #'((end . ((9 . 256) . (9))))

If you'd post code that shows what you've tried and what doesn't work, it
would be easier to help you.  And if there's a bug that is causing problems,
then it's easier to debug.

I'm sorry for your difficulties.  If you can get back with some examples,
I'll try to help (but I'm leaving tomorrow morning on my second week of
