This appears to be an issue with Wine + TwinView at large, but since it's effecting Eve in my case, I thought I'd bring it up here.

I've got Ubuntu 10.04 installed on my machine with an Nvidia GTX 260, and everything runs fine. The only problem is that, even though the game will maximize to one monitor with TwinView enabled, it only has one resolution available -- and that's the combined width of both monitors. It ends up being all scrunched up and distorted.

However, I am able to run the game just fine when I use an emulated desktop in, which works alright, as it ends up effectively being windowed mode anyway, which I prefer.

But I'd like to know if anyone has run into this problem, and if a solution (other than using an emulated desktop) is available?

in your xorg.conf file go and create some "metamodes" to tell the Xserver that several screen with different resolutions are available
something along the lines of :
Quote:
Option "metamodes" "CRT-1: 1280x1024, DFP-0: 1600x1200; CRT-1: 1280x1024, DFP-0: NULL; CRT-1: NULL, DFP-0: 1600x1200"



obviously, replace the relevant parts. Details of how to fill this option are available in the nvidia FAQ on their site

you should run eve within an emulated wine desktop anyway, it helps with a bug

How do you manage to get this to actually take using nvidia-settings? I have a 1600x1200 monitor on the right and a 1280x1024 monitor on the left and slightly lower than the main display. I have the resolutions specified for each monitor. Not only do I end up with my PC thinking I have a "2880x1200" display, any time a new icon shows up, it displays above the viewable area of the left monitor Rolling Eyes

I am having the exact same problem, and I would like to know if there is a command we can put into the wine shortcut command to force a resolution.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 as well, GTX 275, 2 22" 1680x1050 monitors in twinview.

Hi,
I had a couple of issues with wine on my dual screen setup, too.

(ubuntu lucid, nvidia drivers, two monitors)

I now launch eve like this:

>>> ~ $ cat /usr/local/bin/eve
#!/bin/bash
env WINEPREFIX="/home/myusernamehere/.wine"
wine explorer /desktop=0,1920x1200 "/home/myusernamehere/.wine/drive_c/Programme/CCP/EVE/eve.exe"

proper rights set, ofcourse.

then "alt+f2" eve enter launches my eve just fine.

hope this helps.
