Linux: Client often changes my windowed resolution - Mutual GNU / Linux - Ryzom Community ForumHomeGuest

Mutual GNU / Linux


#1 [en] 

I run the Ryzom client at 1280x960 windowed. This is set in the client.cfg file. Often, when I start the client, I find it suddenly running at 1024x768 windowed and the setting has been changed in the client.cfg file.
What can I do to stop this, other than a) checking the resolution every time I start the client either manually or with a script or b) locking the config file against changes?

You do seem to have a lot of client.cfg problems. If you were on Windows I'd tell you to fix your permissions. :P

Is your UI also being reset? If so, that's a known bug, although "known" is a bit rich in my case since I can't remember what causes it.

#3 [en] 

No, it's not. Everything else stays as it should. As for the persmissions (we do have those on Linux :P) they're <me>:users 644.

#4 [en] 

Sure, but Linux permissions do what you tell them to do and then keep doing it. :P

#5 [en] 

I keep a script to force the resolution to stay where I want it to be. It seems the "corrections" to client.cfg occur when the client shuts down. I have no idea why they occur. So you can check for the width and height lines and do a regex replace before starting the client again.

Window client here, by the way.

Hi Nonea,

Problems with the linux client are handled by the open source community atm. It looks as though this issue is similar to yours: http://dev.ryzom.com/issues/1262. I suggest you add your voice to that issue.

I wasn't aware of that site/link. Thanks, Sywindt.
