Hello Play on Linux community :D

I was woundering if some one might give me some pointers. Ill start with some info before i list my problem.

Ubuntu 9.04 (jaunty), Kernel Linux 2.6.28-16-generic, GNOME 2.26.1
Laptop spec can be found here
Only difference is it has more RAM 740MB

Play on Linux 3.7. I hope this is enough info °_°

Iv so far managed to install one of my favorit old games "Theme Park Work", all seemed to go fine. Play on Linux installed the update for me. I can run the game but this is where i start to have problems. For starter's i cant see the whole screen as gnome's top and bottem menu bars are in the way and dont dissapear.
But whats realy anoying is that the mouse cursor will not move to the far right of screen. I can just about click on a user button but not the quit button.

I do hope iv explaned this well enough.

Thanks in advace for any imput :D

Turning off (or enabling) compiz fusion should resolve your first issue.

For the second issue you should do aggressive (don't get it to serious :sunglasses:) mouse the direction where you cannot move mouse. After few such moves you'll notice that mouse will work correctly for the rest of the game. If you wish you can report that as an bug at Bugzilla because i didn't do that.

BTW. Do copy protection on CD works for you?

You Sir are the Man thanks :D

In ubuntu i turned off Visual Effects and the game now run's fine full screen. Mouse problem was solved with some aggressive movment's as suggested.

As for your question on the copy protection i read the message that come's up after install and just got a new exe from
Though i do have plan's to install a dual boot on my game system so ill let you know, as i will be installing Theme Park World on it for sure

Once again thank you
