  • I used to start a second X Session for the game and kept running all other programs in the default X Session, so a simple ctrl + alt + f8 brings me to the game, and a ctrl + alt + f7 back to normal.

    hope that helps

  • For most games that I play, when in full screen mode simply pressing Alt+Enter toggles between full screen and window mode.
    If the game does not support that function then using arno911's solution should work. To start a new session in KDE3 you need to go to the KDE menu and go to "start new session", then will send you to the login screen were you can login as the same user and utilize the second session for the games or whatever.
