OpenGL programs load on non-default monitor and lose mouse support


Hello everyone ,

I set up dual monitor support with a gf 7950, one widescreen 20" Samsung LCD, and one 19" Viewsonic LCD.

The problem is that whenever I want to run Warcraft III in wine, it runs on my 19" Viewsonic which is non-default. I also lose support of the cursor if I move on to the 19" Viewsonic which is running Warcraft III, and it isn't just invisible - because I have tried clicking in numerous locations blindly.

I do have keyboard support If I do not click off the application - otherwise the game dissapears but is still running in the background.

It is set up as the 20" (0) and the 19" (1), in the nvidia settings. So the 20" should be default.

Thanks.

I have a very similar problem. Since both my monitors are now DVI connected instead of my main Samsung in DVI and my ACER in VGA all my games now start in my second monitor (ACER) and I lose my mouse and keyboard control.

The only thing I can do with the keyboard is CTRL+ALYT+BACKSPACE to restart the x server.

This in fullscreen or windowed mode for ETQW, PREY, UT2004 and Quake4.

Did you try turning off xinematic mode or whatever it is(?)
I managed to get mine to work normally again, but I forget exactly how. It was definately to do with turning xinematic off.

xinerama you mean.

I'll give this a try. It's a good idea.

I'll turn it off and reboot before re-activating it.
