Default Re: How do I restore original resoltion after a fullscreen dumb app changed it?

Same as Control-Alt-"-". It only allows me to go back to where the crashed app set the resolution. After that, silently ignored.

As I mentioned, I know this used to work last time I played with wine (I should know better...), I dunno what broke it.


I have since then composed a video mode and call XF86VidModeSwitchToMode(3) directly, but I get
X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 135 (XFree86-VidModeExtension)
Minor opcode of failed request: 10 (XF86VidModeSwitchToMode)

[I am sure I got the right parameters, even though the manpage should have mentioned that the clock is in KHz).
