Ubuntu 14.04: Application window goes black sometimes?!


#1

Hi guys …

I’ve managed to build Atom on Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop Edition x64 and over all it runs really smooth. But from time to time the Atom window goes totally black. I’ve tried changing the nvidia drivers, I’ve tried to disable some of the desktop compition functions from compiz etc. but is yet to find a solution to my problem. The Atom windows doesnt even have to have focus sometimes. That makes me think that it perhaps not is Atom but Ubuntu’s Unity desktop or drivers.

Anyone else seen this problem. Perhaps found a solution?

Best regards

At the bottom of the main Settings screen is a checkbox for “Use Hardware Acceleration”. Have you tried unchecking it?

Thanks for the tip, leedohm. I’ve tried to uncheck it now. Will get back when I’ve tried it out for a while.
