I recently installed crossover, which has helped greatly with installing and running some Windows programs I still needed. I've also been able to install a couple of slot machine games. A third one is having a bit of a problem, but I don't think it's the program, crossover or wine.
If I run the program in my default desktop - unity/gnome - it apparently tries to initialize the screen somehow and says something to the effect of can't reset device. If I go to a terminal and type metacity --replace, it will run fine with the mouse. However, doing so I lose the task bar and the unity menus (obviously) and also can't type in the terminal window any more. I actually have to do a physical reset on my system.
I installed kde so I could select it at log in, and the program runs fine in it as well, but to be honest I'm just too used to gnome/unity to want kde.
So, with it working in kde, working when I do the metacity --replace, but not working in default unity/gnome, I'm assuming it's a unity/gnome thing.
Is there a way to set to metacity and still get control of my entire machine? Is there a way to set something up, possibly in one of the various xorg config files that would let this run (although this seems doubtful to me considering kde is using X as well)?
