Fullscreen problem

Postby yehdev_cc on Sun Mar 09, 2008 1:36 pm

Hi,
I have a very annoying problem with linux mint, both the KDE & Gnome versions...
When I switch to fullscreen mode - in Virtual box for example - the task bar ( the lower panel) remains shown, so that I can't get the benefits of the fullscreen view...
Also when I play 'wesnoth' the game keeps switching between the fullscreen & windowed modes...
I used both Ubuntu & Kubuntu and I didn't have these problems, that's why I think it's due to some 'minty' features :shock:
While this still happens...some games like tux racer works just right...
I don't play much...but I do use virtual box a lot...so any advice ?
thanx in advance

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

This could be because we set the screen resolution to 1024x768 for some parts.
It could also be or combined with your virtual box video ram size, ie not enough.
or a conflict of your system resolution and vm resolution.

I'm not quiet sure,but I think the virtual machine works just good, but Mint lower panel keeping shown, hides a part of the the display...
Besides, some other fullscreen games/applications like 'Battle for wesnoth'...
I think it's about the lower panel of mint as this didn't happen on bare Ubuntu or Kubuntu..
By the way, I'm using Mint 4.0 KDE...
Thanks in advance...

I think I saw a solution, but that was in gnome....
The signature was not indecent in any way, but could lead to misunderstandings
I thought I'd mention that for all other viewers of this topic
