Bug Description


there seems to be a yet another problem with the nvidia drivers:

* When switching to fullscreen mode, there is a frozen image.
* While the screen is frozen the system "blindly" runs all right: There is sound, the System reacts to keypresses; So only the display is frozen, not the displaying application nor the windowing system or the kernel.
* When you manage to quit fullscreen mode (for example by pressing a shortcut-key like "f" or CTRL+"f") The display un-freezes.
* When you press CTRL+ALT+F1 while there is a frozen fullscreen image and then CTRL+ALT+F7 the fullscreen mode un-freezes.

What I did in detail / Perhaps this helps to reproduce the problem:

System setup:
- I freshly installed kubuntu 13.10
- I changed the append-line via /etc/defaults/grub:
 11 #GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
- I installed the nvidia-drivers via jockey-kde

Triggering the problem:
- start frozen-bubbles
- press f
- screen freezes
- press CTRL+ALT+F1
- TTY appears
- press CTRL+ALT+F7
- frozen bubbles unfreezes an can be played fullscreen mode

Other applications that have the same problems with fullscreen-mode:
- rocksndiamonds
- dosbox

Applications that do work in fullscreen-mode:
- vlc
- xine
- mplayer
