So i m pretty new to ubuntu, and i m trying to setup Warcraft3 on wine. So far everything works nice but theres like 1 Problem. To play games on it i work with an other opened Tab (Makemehost.com) to find games. On windows i was simply switching tabs with the windows button, but ubuntu is kinda not letting me switch tabs once i opened Wc3. i once managed kinda switch to chrome, but the mouse was physicly still on the game and to be honest i have no clue how i did it. Is this a regular issue with playing games on wine/ubuntu or am i missing a simple trick.
Are you running out of ram? Have you updated your graphic driver?
I’m not a gamer so I can’t help with wc3, but I did get a lot of hits in the ubuntuforum.
well the game works fine so far. No blackscreens (8GB of RAM), no keyboard problems its just the thing that i cant tab out of the game. it basicly forces me to close the game when i want to go on chrome.
With 8G of ram, try this…
sudo swapoff -a
Worst case while running with swapoff is a crash (out of ram). Use “swapon” to turn swap back on. Swap can be tweaked
What graphics do you have?
My whole setup runs on an old lenovo T510 with onboard gpu. its an old machine but suprisingly nice working with Ubuntu
Graphics: Card: NVIDIA GT218M [NVS 3100M] Display Server: X.Org 1.18.3 drivers: nouveau (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) Resolution: [email protected] GLX Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on NVA8 GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 11.2.0
Like I said, run with swapoff for a while.
Your running the nouveau driver, is that by choice or is nothing else offered?
sudo ubuntu-drivers devices
Have you fully updated you new system?
Have you tried the Driver Tool as @anon42388993 pointed out? ?:
