Little problem with games

Postby Juice on Tue Jan 01, 2008 8:48 pm

So I Installed Daryna about an week ago and loving it more and more. Theres just one little issue I cant fix my own...

So I got Urban Terror and Open Arena, two games I like to play (well only too). Both have similar problem, after 5 minutes of playing those jump on windowed mode and my hole system freezes. Only thing that I can do, seems to be rebootin X...

Video Card: Geforce 6600GT 256Mb. Seems to be working as like it should be

Maybe someone have passed similar problem.

Thanks :wink:

This sounds similar to a problem I had with Tremulous. Before you play, turn Compiz off by opening a terminal and typing "metacity --replace". See if that works.

See http://linuxmint.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=3585&p=23565#p23565 for a quick way to switch between compiz and metacity.
