Gxine closes when switched to fullscreen mode


Well, uh... exactly what it says in the title. Other than that it works fine

I've seen the same thing and never really found a way to keep it from crashing. I think one of the problems is that although gxine is still distributed with Slackware, I believe its development stopped quite some time ago. So my solution has been to use eitherkaffeine, which is a good xine front end, or switch to Mplayer.

Oh! So it's a frontend problem? I''l switch to totem if there's no cure, but is there anything I can do, as I rather like gxine...
