Right after installing Wiley 15.10 from iso image, I discovered that some windows are not showing up:

  • The terminal, when you press CTRL+ALT+T
  • The Chrome Browser which has been the 1st I've installed right after

Both are open, but not showing up. They don't even show up when I want to switch to the window by using ALT-TAB.

That must be a bug, I did not even change any settings.

  • By any chance a second monitor connected, but switched off? If not, what does System Settings > Monitors show? – Jacob Vlijm Jan 12 '16 at 6:28
  • that is it! you can list the screens in terminal using xrandr, too, but there is only one connected. – Artisan72 Jan 12 '16 at 6:35

My monitor had an extra HDMI cable connected, that's why the system has detected a 2nd screen which did not exist. Removing it has solved the problem. Thanks to Jacob Vlijm!
