I recently have been trying to get Blender working correctly on a rig with an ATI 4870 (on Ubuntu). I’ve managed to make things work by running Blender in windowless mode (blender -W in the terminal), which I prefer anyways over windowed mode.
The only problem with this is that I can’t minimize the window, so when I render something, I can’t browse the web or anything else while I wait. When I try to alt-tab out of Blender, the cursor sometimes will change, almost as if it has switched tasks, but Blender is still on top for some reason.
So basically: Is there any way to minimize Blender in windowless mode?
Thanks in advance!
