Issue report : TF2 can't go back to the game after atl+tab
I managed to start TF2 (already a big deal) but once in the game if I press alt+tab and can go to other applications. My problem is I can't display the game anymore if I want to resume my game. The game is still running, I hear the sound but I get a black (white actually in my case) screen.

I've actually had this happen to me sometimes on the Windows version. It's quite annoying. I'm interested in seeing what people have to say about this.

This problem seems to vary a bit from DE to DE....In Unity all you need to do is click the steam icon in the launcher and that solves the issue for me
