Re: Games freeze when I Minimze or select other program
Problem: Works fine in windowed mode, freezes in full screen.
Solution: Run in windowed mode.
Seriously, it's a Windows program running under Linux. You have a solution, use it. Doing full screen via wine can be done, but then trying to swap in and out and expect it to perform like the OS it was originally written for is just asking a bit too much.
The only thing that you could try and cross your fingers that it'll work (which it won't 99.9999% of the time - this is Steam we're talking about here, they have some of the greatest games written on one of the worst software platforms for launching ever invented) is to make sure you have your visual effects turned off, as that "might" cause the issue.
System - Preferences - Appearance
Click the box next to None.
Try and see what happens. Most likely, it will still do it. At which point you can do the same thing the rest of us who play Steam games do - "Well hell, it works in Windowed mode, I'll just use that and be happy I can play it at all in Linux."
I am not here for your hearts and your minds - we have enough of those in stock, what we really need right now are feet and elbows...
