Thanks, but 0.15 is really old (released in December 2018), and should not be compared to more recent openMSX versions (mostly because of the move to SDL2). So, please try the current code (it is easy to compile on Ubuntu, let me know if you need help with that) and see whether this has been improved.

What kind of GPU do you have in your PC running openMSX?

I can imagine. I usually prefer repositories versions cause they're supposed to be stable versions. Maybe I could compile it without install so I can keep the repo version just in case, and test the other one appart.
The GPU on the minipc I tried it is the integrated one, Intel HD Graphics 400. Basic and cheap, I know, but it can run Playstation games like Wipeout nicely.
Wich makes me think now, not sure what renderer it was using. I use SDL-GL on the main PC, wich also uses Intel Graphics, but that's an i7. Anyway I'll focus on the fullscreen error, see if it happens with newer version.

You can always compile without installing, but it requires some trickery to run it properly. Also, note that installing from source will not overwrite your package, the default installation location will be in /opt.

Looking forward to hear from you Smile

I compiled. I made the trickey. Have a working openMSX 0.17.

On my minipc (wich I call the mini dev kit)
Before (0.15)
- Scaler TV, 4x: Bit slow and choppy specially when using SCC, noisy peaks noticeable on Salamander, TriloTracker... + Boom when changing to fullscreen mode.
- Scaler SaI, 4X: Quite ok, fullscreen still booms. Reducing Zoom to 3x on TV Scaler also improves a bit.

Now (0.17)
- Whatever: Ok, no slow or choppy sound on SCC, sounds ok. Fullscreen working properly.

So, now 0.17 is the main one in this minidevkit computer. So, if some bug happens, you'll have some messages here Tongue

Hell, give some time to breath Crying
Well, the source code I downloaded today was 17.0 from openmsx website. Wait, wasn't it 0.17? Tongue
So if that one isn't the lastest, not sure were to get it.

Yeh, I saw that but those are builds, not source. Can't find any linux source, the Builds Archive menu gives a privacy error.
