View Full Version : Can anyone help recover from GFCE Ultra crash? (video)

This has happened to me a few times, so I'd like to find a solution.

After loading a game in full-screen mode, GFCE goes haywire. The screen goes black. The keyboard and mouse is still responsive, though. Hitting escape exits full-screen mode, but a translucent black forcefield prevents me from interacting with Gnome.

As far as I can tell, it is impossible to interact with the desktop or eliminate the black box. Ctl-alt-del and power button do nothing. So, a hard reset is required.

Does anyone have a solution? I will leave the "crashed" state live so I can attempt your suggested resolutions.

Here is a bad video of what I'm talking about.

ctl-alt-f1 followed by /etc/init.d/gdm restart works. If there is a better solution, I'd love to have it.
