#2759 closed defect (wontfix)
SDL: Full screen on Linux with dual head does not work
|Reported by:||SF/tessus||Owned by:||fingolfin|
|Cc:||Game:||Monkey Island 1|
Version of ScummVM:
ScummVM 0.9.0 (Jun 24 2006 02:33:27) Features compiled in: Vorbis FLAC MP3 ALSA zLib MPEG2
Platform: Linux 2.6.17-1.2157_FC5 #1 Tue Jul 11 22:55:46
When I try to run a game in fullscreen mode, both LCD's are used and the scaling does not work either.
The only game I tried was 'The Secret of Monkey Island', but I don't think that this problem depends on a specific game.
Regarding a dual screen solution, just one LCD should be used and the scaling should work aswell.
I've attached my xorg.conf.
My both LCDs run at 1280x1024.

This sounds more that you didn't configure your X server correctly and/or didn't set up the DISPLAY variable correctly.

Hmm, well, all other programs work as they should. Therefore it is not likely having a misconfigured X server. There should be a parameter which defines the screen for the fullscreen. Don't you think?

did you try any other application which uses SDL?

I've tested two SDL applications after you have posted the question. Stellarium 0.8.1 works as it should in fullscreen mode (except that I see the same picture on screen 1 and 2, but I can live with that) and DOSBox 0.65 which has the same problem as ScummVM. Fullscreen is spanned over screen 1 and 2. It seems that there is a problem between SDL and the application. But you could be right and it is just a SDL problem. Do you think that I should open a bug for SDL?
The funny thing is that stellarium works in fullscreen mode...

If DOSBox has the same problem, this is indeed most likely to be a SDL specific problem; in particular, SDL 1.2.x is not really aware of multiple displays, and there is no API to deal with them which we could use -- in other words, there is nothing we can do about this (at least not until after SDL 1.3 is finished, which could take anything between 1 month, 1 decade or 1 eternity :-)
Closing this as "Wont Fix" since we can't do anything about it (sorry).

I am not sure we can do anything about this. This falls more into the responibility of SDL than of ScummVM...
