Default pioneers, freeciv on dell mini 9? - 04-25-2009, 04:52 PM

Hello,
I've installed two games for my dell mini 9 (ubuntu):
Pioneers and freeciv

I'm unable to plsy them because the configuration panels needed to start them are taller then the screen. There is no way to pan the display window down, or reszie the config screen to make them fit.

Is there a work around for this issuse?
Thanks in advance

shaggybrown.

Try finding a flat part of the dialog window/panel, not a button or text field or such, and on that hold down ALT whilst dragging the config dialog around with the trackpad and left button (together). It should let you reposition the dialog such that you can access other concealed parts of the dialog.

I'm assuming they are regular window app panel dialogs, and not graphically rendered through the game's own engines else that will probably not work.
