Steam Game Won't Fullscreen

Post by nixnuc » Sat Feb 09, 2019 5:32 pm

Hi All,

Complete noob to Mint (and Linux). I'm running Mint 19 Cinnamon on an Intel NUC8i5BEK.

When I run S.T.A.L.K.E.R. in Steam, it opens as a window in the top left of my desktop; it does not display the entire game in this window, rather just a section of the game (it's as if the game IS running full screen, but only displaying the top-left corner while the other 3 corners are of my desktop).

When I alt-tab and scroll to the program icon on the taskbar and click "Maximize", nothing happens. I've only gotten it to go fullscreen twice...once when I was spamming maximize and alt-tabbing in and out, and once when the Cinnamon environment crashed and the system asked if I wanted to restart it.

I've tried editing the game's config file in its Steam folder to run at my native resolution, force fullscreen, etc. but nothing works.
