New Beta - 1.75.1 - Linux Mint 10 - 1366x768 res

Post by smiggy » Wed Mar 16, 2011 2:19 pm

New beta installed, excellent so far bar one small problem!
Cannot achieve full screen on default laptop res of 1366x768?

Previous stable version (1.65) supported this no problem at all.
When I set it to full screen it simply sits in a window, if however I drop it down to 1024x768 no problem at all?

Any ideas anyone how to address/fix or is it a known 'bug'.

Many thanks!

Smiggy :D

I had the same case with 1.74.2 on Ubuntu 8.04 and it was a conflict with Compiz.
I don't have a Linux Mint installation at reach, but removing desktop effects might do the trick.

...and by the way...

That's excellent, thanks for taking time to reply.
Will give it a go when I get home.

Been playing it on both windows and linux, as was an addict during the BBC B 'Wire Frame' days!!!

Well tried the compiz disable option but no joy.
Never mind, I can live with 1024x768 full screen.

Hope it gets resolved in future releases!
Having fun with the Merlin OXP and genericHUD OXP too.

I will try to replicate the case this weekend.

I visited Linux Mint main page and saw that different flavors of Linux Mint 10 exist.
Which one of the following do you have?
  • Linux Mint 10 LXDE
  • Linux Mint 10 KDE
  • Linux Mint 10

In the meantime, and if you haven't already done so, please, try the following.

In Ubuntu in order to disable all window manager effects I do
System > Preferences > Appearance > Visual Effects tab > and then set to "None."

See if there is something similar in Linux Mint and give it a shot.

Cheers!

Just FYI, on my laptop I have Oolite running full-screen (1366x768) just fine. Ubuntu Lucid with Compiz. Graphics chip is on-board Intel 945GM.
The glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

@Micha:
This is why I believe that it's a combination of Compiz, video driver and kernel that shows this behavior.

@smiggy:
Please, post the result of

Would you consider moving to 2.6.37 or 2.6.38?

Yeah, apart from fact I don't know how?
I simply installed Linux and just update as and when prompted.
You referring to the Kernel?

I'm having the same problem on Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop, can stretch window but borders remain. The window maximize button blanks the contents, and F12 does nothing. Glad to see I'm not alone, I'll post more system info (uname, lspci) when I get the lappy out otherwise I'd just be guessing.

Ian.
