Post Wine with virtual desktop and resolution
Hi, there. I want to run Wine with a virtual Desktop. Everything is running fine, so far. But im wondering, if its possible to change the resolution in the virtual desktop. Also virtual desktop with a resolution 1440x900 and in it a windows programm with a resolution 1024x768.
I did some research, the only thing i came up with is the zooming function from compiz. But that is not an option for me.

Here some infos:

2.6.36-1-mepis-smp
wine-1.2.3

run the command, "winecfg" and in the "Graphics" tab uncheck the box that says, "Emulate a virtual desktop". This will allow your Windows apps to run in normal windows so you can set them to fullscreen
