yesterday lots of updates (mesa, vulkan, libraries etc…) appeared in my package manager, as usual I installed all of them and rebooted.
After the reboot I watched some Youtube and noticed the arrow keys no longer skipped forward or went back when watching in fullscreen, but when I clicked on the video in fullscreen they worked again briefly.
Afterwards I wanted to play some games and once again weird behavior appeared, the game loaded fine but after briefly showing the game I was dumped back into my DE whilst the game was still running fine in the background.
Clicking on the running game briefly brought me back to game but I was dumped again to the DE after a second or 2.
It was at that time I realized the updates most likely broke something, luckily I had a Timeshift from before the updates.
I’ve rolled back the system to before the updates et voila, the focus issue was gone.
My questions now are:
- Is this also happening to other people?
- What can I do to resolve this, except not updating?
I like to keep my system up to date.
Obviously I’ve Googled this issue but nothing useful came up.
