Desktop background dissappears in worspace switcher

Postby OscarIB » Wed Apr 17, 2013 1:03 am

Hi, I've recently installed linux mint on a pavilion dm4, and it's running smooth, really nice.

Just recently the background started going black when I go into the workspace switcher, or to the open window selection screen (I don't know what it's called, you get there by pressing ctrl+alt+arrow key down), or when I'm alt-tabbing through the windows, so basically anywhere but on workspaceX itself the background just goes black.

I haven't changed anything about the settings and I didn't do an update before rebooting the last time. I know this might not be appropriate to say about a system but.... it "just" happened, dare I say it, for no reason, it appears.

Is there a quick fix for this?

Would very much appreciate some help with this.

I have the same issue.
In case OP is still around or anyone else reads this, has someone an idea how to solve it?

When using the workspace switcher (ctrl-alt-up) or the exposè/window switcher app (ctrl-alt-down), the desktop background is replaced by a black screen instead.
