Partial or Blank VBox UI in Cinnamon 4.6

Reported by: huh? Owned by:
Component: GUI Version: VirtualBox 6.1.14
Keywords: Cinnamon 4.6, Linux Mint 20 Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: Linux


Host: Ubuntu 20.04 (focal) also verified on Linux Mint 20 Ulyana
Kernel: 5.4.0-47-generic
Guest: N/A as it is the main UI
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060
GPU Driver: nvidia-driver-440-server Xorg
GPU Driver Source: graphics-drivers-ubuntu-ppa-focal
Display Manager: Cinnamon 4.6
Failure is on the host level

After installing VirtualBox via both apt (virtualbox 6.1.10), downloaded (virtualbox 6.1.14), and through added virtualbox repo (virtualbox 6.1.14) on both Linux Mint 20 and Ubuntu 20.04 running Cinnamon 4.6 (on Ubuntu 20.04 using the UbuntuRemix repo) the UI is either blank or shows up partially. The cli functionality is all there and working, it is just the UI. Sometimes I can guess my way around and launch a VM, but for any guest I am using the screen does not refresh.

Attached are the VBoxBugReport and a screenshot of the partial UI.

I would love to take the time to troubleshoot more, but I just don't have it as this is my main system and I need it up and running for work. I am wiping it and reinstalling Ubuntu 20.04 with Cinnamon 4.4 in which Virtualbox works just fine.

Also I have tried running ./virtualbox from my user cli and it typicall produces the blank UI. Running ./virtualbox with sudo or as the root user typically generates the partial UI.
