Hello friends

I have just moved from Windows to Linux and installed DOSBox. Everything works nice and perfect, but after exitting DOSBox all my desktop icons (Linux/KDE) are reorganized automatically. Surely this issue is related to KDE due the change of resolution, but maybe someone has experienced the same and found a solution to keep the icons right on their place when DOSBox is executed in full-screen mode with a different resolution than KDE.

I will appreciate any comment...

Use the same resolution in dosbox as your desktop. The Linux graphics stack lacks the notion of temporary resolution switching. So when an application changes the resolution, it also applies to the desktop.
