I have a PC running Mint 17.3, with an Nvidia GTX 560 graphics card, using 2 monitors. This set-up has been running for several months now without problems. I usually run 2 Omega characters together, one on each monitor. Note that there have been no updates whatsoever to this system or it’s drivers for several days, and the only program I’m having any problems with is Eve.
This morning I was mining, my Main doing the mining and my Alt moving the ore back to a station. I had been on for an hour, with both sessions running OK, had moved windows round, looked at other programs etc - as I normally do. I sent my alt back to the station and, while the screen was blank before finishing docking, something odd happened to my graphics. When the in-station screen appeared, it covered the entire screen including the task bar (which is normally never obscured on Mint). I finally managed to get it to minimise by randomly running my hands across the keyboard (in desperation…), at which point I could terminate it.
Ever since, whenever I run the client screens (The launcher is OK) I get them sometimes covering the task-bar and at other times not. If I move either client screen to the other monitor (which is larger), the screen retains it’s smaller resolution but spread across the whole monitor, while the mouse recognises the larger resolution, i.e. clicking on the screen where the the button or whatever should be (were it displayed correctly) has the correct result.
I’ve obviously got a screwed-up settings file somewhere, either in Eve or in Wine. Can anyone suggest such a file that i could edit or replace in an attempt to fix this problem, or am I going to have to uninstall Eve and Wine, and start again from scratch ?
