That's weird.  Works ok here with XFCE and KDE.  I'm running plain old
Slackware current with stock kernel, no integrated GPU, nvidia
proprietary blob. My VMs mostly stay on the CLI to test compiles for SBo.

4.4.132 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6850K CPU @ 3.60GHz
(Broadwell E)

Maybe try another qemu video driver?  I stick with "-vga std" and rarely
use a WM/DE.  Also, 4.17 includes virtioGPU support for accelerated VM
graphics.  That might be an issue with a 14.2 "hybrid" system.

Compare your command line args with mine in the VM script I use.  Maybe
something will pop out:


In the meantime, I about ready to start testing stuff on current so I'll
set up a VM...with my "copious" free time, of course.
