Right now I'm running Trine, which is a game using OpenGL running in fullscreen, in Ubuntu 10.10.
What I would like to be able to do is Alt+Tab out of the game to be able to browse the web, check any IM messages, etc. while paused.
However, just Alt+Tab'ing doesn't do anything, so I have to quit the game every time I want to check something.
Is there any way that I can minimize a fullscreen game? I know I can probably run it in windowed mode, but then I would have to hide the panels when playing - since the game would otherwise be hidden underneath. Plus, that's just an ugly solution.
