Description Robert Styma 2005-08-02 20:18:51 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
Type Typing goes to full screen mode.  Upon exit the display is still in
640x480 mode and you have to scroll around to see the whole desktop.  Logging
off and then back on again resolves the problem.  Some programs have to be reconfigured to get them to the correct sizes.

Video Card:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
tuxtype2.i386                            1.5.2-3 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Screen size is set to 1024x768 pixels
2. Start Tux Typing
3. Play falling fish on easy mode for a bit
4. Exit the program.  Screen does not go back to the correct dimensions

Actual Results:  It appeared that the desktop was 1024x768, but only 640x480 was displayed at a
time.  If you moved the mouse to the edge of the screen, the other parts of the
screen would show up.  Had to log off to get the screen back to normal.

Expected Results:  As with most of the stuff under games, the screen should revert to it's
original state.  No relevant messages in /var/log/messages.

Comment 1 Steven Pritchard 2006-03-16 16:51:48 EST
That's very odd.  I can't reproduce the problem.  The only ideas I have are to
try the proprietary nvidia driver from rpm.livna.org (I *think* it will still
drive the TNT2 cards), try rebuilding the 1.5.3 package that's in the
development/FC5 tree to see if that changes anything, or try FC5 when it comes
out next week to see if the newer version of X.org fixes the problem.
Comment 2 Steven Pritchard 2006-03-16 17:05:26 EST
Thinking about this a little more, I've decided to update the FC4 package to
1.5.3.  The build system is down at the moment, so it will take a little while
for the new package to push out.

Either try the new package once it is available, or, like I said before, rebuild
the source rpm from development and try that.

Hello Steve, your fix came through yum update this morning and it works just
great.  Thank you for your time and efforts.
