I am hoping someone can at least point in some sort of direction to investigate and ultimately solve my problem with KDE. The majority of the time, after sleep / hiberate / suspend or even just come from the screensaver running my desktop will go black, but the active windows are visible. I even tried switching workspaces with the mouse scroll wheel, no change…actually no workspace switching period. I have also tried CTRL+ALT F1 through to F7 with no success. What is strange is sometimes even with sleep/screensaver modes disabled I can move between workspaces and this will happen.
I tried turning off sleep, and screensaver, and even switched from open source to proprietary drivers will no luck.
Any thoughts? Reinstall?
