    Any ideas how to solve the black window issue? This used to work fine until the most recent Ubuntu/Chrome upgrades about three weeks ago. (parallels 14.1.3, Ubuntu 18.04 all recent patches installed, Google Chrome up to date (74? Cannot see as the window is black).

    When I start Chrome with --no-gpu option, it works fine but is ridiculously slow.

    How do I resolve this?

    Same here :( I always used Chrome in my Ubuntu in Parallels, but since a couple of days the window is black. Uninstalling and re-installing did not help. Google Chrome.png

    Run Chrome with --use-gl=angle fix for me.

    --use-gl=angle does fix the problem but it also makes Chrome ridiculously slow. In the log messages I can see it then fails to initialise 3d acceleration.

    It has now been awhile. New Ubuntu versions, new Chrome versions but the problem still persists. It seems like Parallels related to me.
