Just playing some more and I have realized that fullscreen mode doesn't work. It changes my desktop resolution, but it doen't center on in epsxe nor make it cover the whole screen.. I am using XFree86 4.3.0 on Debian sid.

Thanks, any tips are welcome.

Fullscreen mode only works correctly if your desktop is the same resolution that is set for the plugin. To work around this, you can write a script to change your resolution to the required setting for using epsxe and then change it back automatically when you quit.

I have my desktop at 1280x1024 and want to use epsxe at 800x600 in fullscreen. I selected 800x600 fullscreen in the plugin configuration and then I use the following script to run epsxe.


xrandr -s 800x600
/path/to/epsxe "[email protected]"
xrandr -s 1280x1024
WARNING: By using this script incorrectly, it is theoretically possible to damage your monitor by selecting a resolution that it cannot display. Please read the xrandr man page!

Hope this helps everyone with this problem.
