    I have installed Arch Linux with KDE Plasma and Chromium browser as Parallels Desktop VM. Everything works more less fine, except Chromium rendering is broken, all it shows is blank window with black rectangle.

    When starting chromium --disable-gpu everything is rendered correctly. Also Chromium works absolutely fine on physical box with Arch Linux. It also worked fine prior to installing Parallels Tools. Therefore I think the problem is related to Parallels Tools GPU acceleration.

    NOTE: When installing Arch I followed "Installing Arch Linux OS in Parallels Desktop" Thanks for supporting Arch!

    By the way, is there any way to start Xorg with native resolution as soon display manager starts? Currently resolution is changed to native (high) resolution only when I log in. Xorg/SDDM starts in 1024x768 when VM boots.

    I'm also experiencing exactly this problem on Linux Mint 19 since the last update.

    The same problem also occur on my mac, vs code and gitkraken.
    When I switched "3D Acceleration" off from setting, the became normal, but GUI speed slow down and some other thing can not show normally e.g. password
