Because of GNOME 3 being very buggy lately (lagging mouse pointer, randomly blanking the screen for no reason, ...) I have decided to use another DE/WM until those are fixed. The games started from PoL run fine on GNOME 3 though, no stuttering at all. The games include Test Drive Unlimited, Morrowind and World of Tanks. However, when I start those games while using i.e. Enlightenment or Fluxbox they will not work: Test Drive Unlimited: white screen/window regardless of fullscreen or windowed execution World of Tanks: Launcher works fine, but after starting the game: white screen/window regardless of fullscreen or windowed execution Morrowind: intro video works, but screen freeze after getting to the main menu screen (only fullscreen tested)
Why? I'd have expected that at least Fluxbox (being not composited) would have worked, but no. What does PoL do different while running on GNOME? Or what does GNOME do different that wine works there?
