I just installed the game "Splice" for ubuntu 12.10 from the Humble Bundle (via the software center)...but the game starts up in a windowed resolution that goes over both of my monitors.

How do you get to the settings either in-game or via the file system? (I can't find either).

According to the README (in /opt/splice), you can toggle full screen by hitting Ctrl+F.

You can also specify a resolution by doing the following in a terminal:

cd /opt/splice
./Splice resolution=[width]x[height] #eg 1280x720

You could also change the launcher for it to launch it with the resolution flag, making it so you don't have to use a terminal to launch.

Now I've just got to figure out why video isn't working on my installation...

Did you figure it out? I get a sound + a black screen. – dpb Nov 20 '12 at 4:41
splice got updated with the software updater so now it's working!! yay! no more black screen!! – tibike Nov 29 '12 at 22:38

Ctrl+f didn't worked for me. But shift+ctrl+f switches to fullscreen resolution.

while superlinkx's answer is good I think this one is the correct one! ON POINT – tibike Nov 29 '12 at 22:40

I found a way to configure this via a preferences file in this post on a steam forum.

In .config/unity3d/Cipher Prime Studios, Inc./Splice/prefs, modify the Screenmanager Resolution Width and Screenmanager Resolution Height values to whatever is required (for some reason the default was 2880x900).
