I have a dual monitor setup on my Linux Mint(20.1) and run Widelands build-21(Release).

My left monitor is my primary monitor and in portrait mode (great for Web, pdf, programming, anything text related) and my right monitor is in landscape mode. (Great for CAD, games, video, anything graphical oriented).

When I start Widelands, it always starts fullscreen on my primary monitor. When I take it off fullscreen, only portrait modes are listed in the Options menu.

Result is, each time I start Widelands, I have to:

  1. Go to options, take it off full screen, (sometimes select a smaller window just to be able to move it),
  2. Drag the window to the other monitor.
  3. Make it full screen again (because no landscape settings are listed in "Window Size".

It would be great if I could select a landscape resolution of 1920x1200 and have Widelands run in that (and remember it)

Supporting multiple-monitors setups is already on our wishlist: https://github.com/widelands/widelands/issues/1079
Nobody has had the time to work on it yet though

In the new version (coming this summer) handling of the main window was reworked, e.g. you don't have to go to options to disable full screen and you can freely resize the window to any size.

Tnx kaputtnik. Rezising the window to arbitrary size is good enough for me.
