Can confirm as another user. Having the same exact problem with the latest Blender-Edge (via Thomas Sheix PPA) release on Linux Mint 17.3.

I'm hoping it gets fixed in 2.79, because for whatever reason 2.8 is worse. Only gray screen there with the Intel chipset on the laptop, no bueno. :(

Seems to happen with the (still official?) version 2.78c. Oddly enough it didn't happen with the previous repository version of the 2.78 series. (I think that's where the old defaults were being pulled from.) Then it seems to be fixed in the 2.79-rc2-linux-glibc-x86-64 version, but is a problem with the 2.79.x PPA.

Tried running it in debug mode...
Seems that the default scene was broken. Messed around a bit, and replaced it with the default scene from 2.78. No crash.

I tried running "blender -softwaregl" from the terminal as you asked.

Added system info as recorded by blender 2.76b under Mint 17.3 Rosa (Cinnamon) 64-bit.

I'm hoping a video is acceptable for explaining and documenting the situation. I tried to include stuff which I'd think may be relevant. A quick run-through of other programs to show they display the alpha grid ok along with precedent for established expectations. (Not sure if they're using the same method, but that it's working. I don't think too much is broken or out of the ordinary with my setup.) Thus this problem seems to be in Blender. Yet within Blender itself, the transparency grid shows in the compositing node. The scene itself is a default scene, which hasn't been changed from the initial install.

I suppose this may help. It was something quick I was messing with when having the particle-related crash and left at that stage. Reloading works, but may crash if changing around the particle settings.
