What works

Google Chrome version 74.0.3729.169 technically opens, but nothing is visible.

What does not

Nothing works at all, it is completely broken. In this version of Chrome, you can't even view the window frame. The window is just entirely black.


What was not tested

I did not try any Wine-level workarounds. I only tested vanilla Wine with clean Chrome installations.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
