I had this problem with RC5 when I installed the newer version of mplayer. mplayer works fine with the default matchbox wm, but with fvwm when I use a script that sets the resolution to 320X480 mplayer seems to want to place the fullscreen image as if it was still 640X480. See attached screenshot.

The script I'm using is:


CODE
#!/bin/bash
xrandr -s 1
sleep 1
mplayer -fstype fullscreen -fs -ac mad  -really-quiet $1
sleep 1
xrandr -s 0
sleep 3


Anyone have an idea why the wm would display so differently?

I think the problem is xrandr. I tried your script with a new RC8 and got the same thing under matchbox. Then tried "xrandr -s 1" and no resolution change. Try to test it under matchbox again and bugreport if you think it's some bug in the xrandr, too.

Zumi: That's odd, my script works fine under matchbox for me. Under fvwm sometimes xrandr doesn't change the resolution. The pattern of this happening is irregular, when it does occur, the next time it runs it works fine. I can't seem to get it to repeat the problem with any regularity.

I'm really bummed that I can't mplayer to work fullscreen under fvwm sad.gif I've installed perl to my SD and now have taviso's directory browsing scripts working so I can browse my mp3 and video directories from the menu and launch xmms or mplayer by selecting the file name, very sweet. (see attached screenshot)

Cheers,
Jerry
