Upon installing Steam I was prompted to install this ppa as well: http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates/ubuntu . After that I couldn't use Dosbox in fullscreen anymore: I had the game running in the background but no picture at all. Everything is fine in windowed mode.
I was using an empty dosbox.conf with this setup to get games fullscreen:
1024x600 is my screen and desktop resolution, overlay allows for the picture to be stretched to fill the screens without deformation (with black bars) while using surface resulted in a fullscreen smaller picture in a black box.
Now the only way to get fullscreen back working is to use fullresolution=original but this also means permament blackbox and changing output= does not solve this.
I'm using elementary OS (based on Ubuntu 12.04, kernel 3.2.0-37), Dosbox 0.74 from the Ubuntu repos.
The computer has an Intel Atom N270 with an integrated GMA950.
