Multiple Monitors with Gnome 3 (Shell) Renders Incorrectly

Reported by: steven.ercolani Owned by:
Priority: major Component: 3D support
Version: VirtualBox 4.0.10 Keywords: Gnome shell
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Windows

Description (last modified by misha) (diff)

Fedora 15 x64 that includes Gnome 3 (shell) and when I enable multiple monitors (2), the overlay that Gnome does messes up the display. Parts of the screen are black and parts of the display go fuzzy.

I've attached a screen capture of the displays to give people an idea of what's going on. As you can see, the one display shows some of the display correctly, but most is just blue and black boxes, and the second display is simply white. In full screen mode, both display are similar to the first display in the image.

Could you check whether the issue is fixed with VBox 4.3 and 4.3 Additions?

OK. VM log attached.

I see this with VBox 4.3.6 and Fedora 20 x64. With 2 monitors selected in the VM settings, I get completely blank screens after the VM boots.

If I switch to fullscreen mode and back I do see the VM login screen briefly before it does black again.

I appear to have the same issue with Win 7 64 bit guest and Ubuntu 13.10 64 bit guest. Login screen renders fine, but after that, just black.

Disabling 3D acceleration works around the problem, but results in a slow desktop.

More info: seems to particularly affect performance when using full screen mode. When not, performance seems fine. When I use 3 screens, perfomance grinds to a halt in full screen as a result of using the llvmpipe stuff.

Ubuntu 13.10 64b on Win 8.1 64b 3D acceleration still failing.
