virtual desktop with fullscreen tv-mode.

Post by lahtis » Mon Feb 18, 2013 1:35 pm

I have a one problem when im using wine as virtual desktop mode.
My display drivers support only 1360*768 resolution. And im running a Steam Terraria game with wine 1024*768 resolution. 768 resolution not fit the Ubuntu unity desktop screen.
(Steam Terraria not run if not using virtual desktop.)

Could the program can match the emulates a virtual desktop in fullscreen mode, as steam which operates TV mode?

Only supports 1360x768? That is my maximum display on my LCD monitor, however when I use xrandr from terminal, I get this;

Code: Select all

xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output VGA1
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 240, current 1360 x 768, maximum 1360 x 768
VGA1 connected 1360x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm
   1360x768       50.0*    51.0     52.0  
   1280x768       53.0  
   1024x768       54.0  
   960x540        55.0  
   840x525        56.0     57.0  
   800x600        58.0     59.0  
   720x450        60.0  
   700x525        61.0  
   680x384        62.0     63.0  
   640x480        64.0     65.0  
   512x384        66.0  
   320x240        67.0  
If you see 1024x768 supported on the list then try;
$ xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1024x768

You will need to subtitute "VGA1" for the name of your output device. Otherwise you might need to look into your xorg.conf file and add some more settings.

Ubuntu unity use top bar like Mac. Im not get the top bar removed or hide. Virtual desktop not fit the screen.
Virtual desktop size is 1024*768. And screen size is 1360*768.

Then as I had windows xp. GeForce 9800 GT was able to 1600 * 1200 resolution, which was the highest resolution on the my Samsung TV. Recent experimental 310 drivers are capable of only 1600 * 768 resolution. Or acted highest resolution hdmi only in that mode. Now im using vga. Should probably be tested in hdmi.

I guess you do not understand my problem.

Im using Wine or Playonlinux program. And im using virtual desktop in my game screen. Big problem is a virtual desktop not fit the screen. Virtual screen size is 1024 * 768. My Ubuntu screen size is 1360*768. this 768 not fit the screen. Game needed the virtual desktop with working.

This 768 resolution does not fit the window because it will hit the top bar. And the game goes to another workspace window. It makes some games to play hard, when game menus and toolbars is a bottom in second workspace.

How would it be if you could wine new feature. Which should be virtual desktop with fullscreen tv-mode.
In the same style as the use Steam tv mode.
