I upgraded to Quantal recently, and Minecraft seems to not want to run in fullscreen. When I go to fullscreen it, the screen will go black for a second, as if it was about to go fullscreen normally, but then it just restores back into its window. So far I have tried:

  • using different JREs (I've tried openjdk 6 and 7, as well as oracle7). Oracle's jre wouldn't even run Minecraft (I just got a black screen after logging in)

  • switching graphics drivers (tried nvidia-current, nvidia-current-updates, and xserver-xorg-video-nouveau)

  • updating minecraft bin files

  • updating lwjgl libraries separately from the lwjgl site

None of this seemed to work at all.

I am running Minecraft with the command java -Xmx1024M -Xms512M -cp minecraft.jar net.minecraft.LauncherFrame

Graphics card is GeForce 9500 GS/PCIe/SSE2.

Everything was working fine a few days ago when I was on 12.04.

This happens to me too. But, at random, when I press F11, it goes full screen. So I keep pressing F11 until it stays full screen. Sometimes it takes up to 10 tries.

Try using Magic Launcher
