Official blenderplayer can not go fullscreen on Linux
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Category: UI/Interface

The official build of blenderplayer, i.e. from [1], can not change the video resolution. However unofficial builds such as those from Irie's Ubuntu PPA [2] work fine. I think this is because the official builds fail to specify "WITH_X11_XF86VMODE = ON" in the build options.

$ ldd /usr/lib/blender/blenderplayer | grep -i xf86vm => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (0x00007f52157eb000)

$ ldd blenderplayer | grep -i xf86vm
<no result>

Attached is a very simple .blend file that should go full screen when the game starts in blenderplayer.

Blender: 2.68a
OS: Ubuntu 12.04 (64-bit)

Attaching partial patch to enable xvidmode setting when building with scons. The build fails, though:
