Making Wine Virtual Desktop Fullscreen?
 
I'm playing Baldurs Gate 2 and everything works fine, but I'm just wondering if there's a way to make the game fullscreen? I'm playing it at 1024x768 on a 1920x1200 display. Right now I'm just lowering the resolution to 1280x960 to enlarge it a bit. Otherwise it's hard to read the text and stuff. Thanks :)

The "virtual desktop" I'm guessing is the little window that it opens within which it launches applications? This is optional, you can disable it so that programs ran with Wine snuggle in with your normal Linux window manager. Just run the command, "winecfg" and in the "Graphics" tab uncheck the box that says, "Emulate a virtual desktop". This will allow your Windows apps to run in normal windows so you can set them to fullscreen and everything. I play World of Warcraft like this and it works just fine.
