You have to install it yourself, from a script, but x.game works perfectly for playing full screen games and being able to get back to the desktop quickly. After you install the x.game script, you just add "x.game start" to the front of your launcher commands such as this:

x.game start wine "/media/DATA/programs/Warcraft III/War3.exe"

Then you use ctrl+alt+f7 and ctrl+alt+f12 to pop in and out. Very handy if you need to adjust the volume. Also handy as a boss key! You leave the game, it keeps running, and there is no trace of it visually.

I use it every day for over a year, and recommend it. I got it from an ubuntu forum thread. Here is the link: http://sudan.ubuntuforums.com/showthread.php?t=699332 Just take it from the first post, he edits it and it is up-to-date.

fsck needs fixing.

Perhaps:

- ask before doing a slow check because of a reboot count. Someone could miss an online game!

- if the / drive needs checking while not mounted, then make it so. Don't make me pull out the cd and type "e2fsk -y /dev/sda1". Is it a security thing or what? It sure kills the experience for regular non-techie users.
