    ya, I don't trust the full screen option. Never had much luck with it. What I do, is set the resolution to the same as my screen, and run this script on it. I made an icon on my tool bar to run it. You will also need to make sure you have wmctrl installed.
    Code:
    sudo aptitude install wmctrl

    This stuff never happened to me, yet. The only thing I find annoying is the top panel which always gets in the way when switching to 640x480. Interesting thing is that this is the only resolution this happens...

    The added bonus of using wmctrl to do fullscreen, is that you can still switch workspaces. Mine is mapped to (ctrl-alt-ArrowKey) to change which one I am looking at. Plus you never have to worry about a crash screwing up your screen res. Some Emulators (eg: Zsnes) even have a "Scale" mode where they stretch the output to what you want automatically.

    Hmmm... Doesn't seem to work with X Windows. PEOpS SoftX plugin seems to be unaffected by the script.

    The plugin shouldn't matter. The script works on any window at all, has nothing to do with ePSXe. (Try your calculator) Remember though, if the res isn't the same as your screen res, all it will do is put it in the top left corner, and get rid of the window controls.

    EDIT:
    Thought.... Are you using Gnome or KDE for your window manager?

    For the heck of it, I tried to run the same game in PCSX, and it's still giving me that blasted black screen that ePSXe is giving me. Given, PCSX confuses me a bit but still... arg.

    Ok, that explains a lot...

    Oh, and I use Gnome.

    @Kymus
    Have you tried not running it fullscreen? I personally have a problem where many standard fullscreen apps won't work with my LCD monitor. For instance, I have to run Regnum in windowed mode, or my monitor goes black.

    Ya, should work fine with Gnome. I am pretty sure KDE would be fine to. some people use different window managers, and I am not sure about those ones.

    Well, anyway, I don't need it.

    I found out that I just have to move my mouse pointer to the bottom and continue until the top panel vanishes from sight.

    You could also set the panel to auto hide I would think. Or set it so you can manually hide it. I would "think" that should work too.
