Full screen and frozen keyboard on Mate

Post by buscon »


I am on Mint 19.1 with Mate on a lenovo yoga 370.

when i put an application in full screen (for example firefox, libreoffice or xreader) i experience some occasional freeze of the keyboard.
I can still use the mouse and the touchpad but not the keyboard. after a while i get control again over the keyboard. Both losing and regaining control over the keyboard does not seem related to any other events from my side.
I never experience such a problem in any other case, so I assume this is an issue with the full screen.

Anyone else experienced the same? Any suggestion on how I can debug this problem?
