Modal dialogs stay behind in Atom on a Ubuntu Mate VM with windows 10 host

Modal dialogs stay behind in Atom on a Ubuntu Mate VM with windows 10 host !

Host: Windows 10
Oracle VirtualBox 5.0.26
Mate Desktop Environment 1.12.1

I tried to take screenshots and on linux the screenshot has the modal dialog in the front whereas the screenshot taken with VM has the modal dialog behind (the way it actually is!)

Please see the attached pics.

Why is this happening?

This appears to be a bug in VirtualBox. Suggested workarounds are to:

  1. Disable 3D acceleration OR
  2. Downgrade Guest Additions to version 5.0.16 OR
  3. Set LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 within the VM

The first workaround worked! Thanks many. :slight_smile:
