Wine and Fullscreen


Silly question but...

Wine seems to have some problems to start application in fullscreen mode. I have a lot of application working fine, but in a little square on the upper corner of my screen. I searched a bit for that bug and the only tricks I found is to reconfigure my X to use the resolution of the apps I want to start to force fullscreen. Of course, this works, but it's a real pain to stop/reconfigure/start X everytime, and I have to know exactly what's the resolution the apps will use.

Is there an easier way?

You can define multiple resolutions in your X configuration file. You can use CTRL ALT + or - to switch between the resolutions. But if they have been defined in the configuration file then it should be able to switch to the proper resolution automatically.

Read the man pages or the documentation at www.xfree86.org to find out what the exact syntax is.
