Trine 2: Fullscreen on 2 monitors
I have 2 monitors, to play the game I have to run it on a window, with less than 1080p. To play with 1920x1080, running into fullscreen, it uses both screens in stead of one (just like TF2 does) and the start bar does not hide behind the game. It is fully playable but those details are annoying.

I have a similar setup where I use nVidia's TwinView for my dual monitor 1920x1200 setup. You should be able to force your 1920x1080 resolution in ~/.frozenbyte/Trine2/options.txt. Find the options ForceFullscreenWidth and ForceFullscreenHeight to 1920 and 1080, respectively.

It looks like this is related to the trine2_bin_starter.sh script that sets the FB_FULLSCREEN_WIDTH and FB_FULLSCREEN_HEIGHT environment variables from the result of xwininfo output. xwininfo doesn't know about the TwinView setup, so it assumes your primary display resolution is 3840x1080. Either overriding those environment variables or setting the ForceFullscreen options should do the trick. These files don't seem to be overwritten during an update, so you shouldn't have to worry about modifying these files after each game update.

This problem started occurring somewhere between Ubuntu 11.10 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. In Oneiric fullscreen on multimonitor was functioning properly, You could specify the monitor for fullscreen app and the spanning did not occur, everthing worked fine. However in Precise, the handling with fullscreen apps has changed, so some programs are now broken in fullscreen. I am not sure what caused the issue, because some programs still work fine (HoN, UFO:AI, TF2, most wine apps), but majority of them do not. For me, Trine 2 also spans accross both monitors, regardless of set resolution.
However I am sure that I did not have those problems in Maveeric or Oneiric, first problems started in Precise.

Thanks so much! This made the game playable for me in fullscreen mode! I'm running a Radeon HD 6800 on a triple monitor setup.

Yeah, thanks eydubs for the trick.

Playing it on 2 monitors is not comfortable, character is in the middle, just where virtual screen "splits". 3 monitors is near to be cheating xDD

Thanks, saved me a lot of time. Although, I can't unterstand why trine2 is storing its config files under my home directory when there is a steam dir as well.
