    Default Various Issues - Wine(CS:S);Compiz;X11;Gnome

    Alright, I've got a handful of little gripes and issues that google's helped to some varying degree. On one end I figured out what to do with Compiz, whereas my resolution problem is completely untouched, as is my issue with gnome panels.

    Anyway, I got my new monitor today and ran sax2 -r and set the proper resolution. However, when I logoff and log back in(haven't hard reset, this shouldn't be necessary.) my resolution is 1280x960 again. Even ran nvidia-settings as root and saved to the xorg.conf, no luck.

    CS:S runs like a charm, minus the fact that it crashes in seconds of joining at any resolution > 1024x768. It's particularly odd since CS:S runs under Wine at nigh-Windows framerates (even dx9 mode, oddly enough). TF2 doesn't crash like this, though it has extremely poor performance.

    Now onto what probably seems like a minor gripe. it seems I've broken formatted subtitle support in gstreamer...somehow. Now subtitles aren't autoloaded, and the formatting is absent, causing subs that should be positioned at the top to show on the bottom next to what should be there. Font size is also being ovverwritten.

    1. Running Compiz does cause problems with some apps.

    2. We don't know what your monitor is or your graphics card (except you mention nVidia) - more info please

    3.
    CS:S - TF2 Umm. What is/are these?

    4. Subtitles? Do you mean in movies?
    You might want to have a look at oldcpu's help page here: NEWBIES - Suse-11.0 Pre-installation PLEASE READ - openSUSE Forums

    I would recommend using mplayer with a front end such as smplayer

    Geforce 7600 GS with Asus PG221 monitor (1680x1050 native resolution) Sax2 properly detects them both as well. As for subtitles, I mean ASS format subtitles embedded in rich video containers such as .mkv. These worked fine and were autodetected before I reinstalled SUSE in xine-derived players. So that means somewhere I got a less than cutting edge decoder for them.

    CS:S and TF2 are Windows games available via Steam I've been running under Wine. TF2 I've had great success with by forcing DX8, and it's newer / more resource intensive. They're both based in the same engine too, which makes it really odd.

    For your monitor - In Yast - Hardware Graphics Card and Monitor
    Config Monitor to LCD-- and your res and ref rate

    Assume you have the nVidia driver installed.

    As for Wine: All I can tell you is, once you have it working - don't upgrade Wine. That's just my limited experience. But I understand improvements have been made in wine. You can add the wine repo from build service for latest ver. It's in the education repo too.
