I am playing GTA San Andreas using Wine. When I quit the game, everything looks weird. How can I fix this?

Edit: After a restart, it solves this issue. But How can I fix without restart.

  • Resolution. See the screenshots. – Tirth Patel May 30 '16 at 14:28

The easiest way to fix this is:

  • ALT+F2 - switchboard
  • Open "Displays".
  • Set your normal screen resolution.

I am not aware of any way to have this fix itself automatically.

  • Because of the resolution, I was not able see Apply Changes in "Displays", but after 3 Tabs + Return it applied changes. Perfect Solution. Thank you :) – Tirth Patel Jun 1 '16 at 23:45

    @TirthPatel in that case, you can use ALT and the left mouse button to drag the window. – RolandiXor Jun 2 '16 at 3:41

This is an issue with Wine. Because GTA SA uses some method to close itself which Wine is not familiar with, it exits unexpectedly. This makes Wine unable to reset the resolution back.

The most easy fix for this is to run GTA SA in a "virtual desktop". You can do this by going to Wine configuration, Graphics and turning on virtual desktops.

  • I tried to open GTA SA in Virtual Desktop but it closes virtual desktop and doesn't open the game. – Tirth Patel Jun 1 '16 at 11:40
