Keeping windows active for gaming

Postby Zeddrich » Fri Nov 17, 2017 9:37 pm

So, I suppose this might be useful for any game, although I'm particularly asking for Minecraft as it would make 'farming' and other resource gathering activities easier. I am wondering if there is a way to keep the minecraft window active while so I can leave the game to run and be away from my laptop?

I've currently tried moving minecraft to another workspace(I should mention I'm using xfce)... I've tried everything I can think of while setting up an 'auto-fisher' on the game and every time I return to my laptop the game is in the *pause* state(like I hit the escape key).

Does anyone know of a way to force the minecraft window to stay active?

Thank you

Not the answer you want but a couple years ago I spent about $300.00 USD for a new W10 laptop. Solved a lol issues very easily about running W10 and Linux.
The past five years I was given two laptops that run Linux Mint quite well. My dual boot idea.

Lindows, Linspire, Freespire, Ubuntu, Mint 15 Cinnamon, Mint 16 XFCE, Mint 17 Cinnamon 64 bit. MInt 18 64 bit Cinnamon.
