Pico-8 on Linux is having problems in full screen mode. When launching full screen, 3 out of 4 times the screen flashes and the programs sits in the background, but can't be accessed and has to be killed. The same thing happens when switching from windowed to full screen mode. Everything works fine in windowed mode.
It seems like this was a problem back in 2016, but was reported fixed. However I am experiencing this in 2021 on Ubuntu with the Xfce desktop environment.
I didn't know about these options, but I have now tried them but they have no effect.
When I try to boot Pico-8 in full screen, it's like the task doesn't complete. In my task manager program, the tast is listed as literally the run command "pico8 -pixel_perfect 1". On the occasions where it does boot correctly, it is listed as just Pico 8 with an icon next to it. Also, if I try enough times, eventually my desktop environment gets corrupted and I have to reboot to restore functionality.
