Issue: Black screen in all full screen games on Cinnamon desktop environment

 

This issue happening for me in all full screen games (also in "glxgears -fullscreen" and not in just "glxgears" for example)

My specs:

Desktop environment: Cinnamon

I tried:

 

1/ Switch to another desktop environment:

- this issue is not happen on Mate, Gnome classic, Unity etc.. only on Cinnamon

 

2/ Older AMD driver (12.10, 12.11 beta11)

- No difference, same problem

 

3/ Switch to my second dedicated GPU (AMD Radeon HD 6470M)

- It works on this GPU
