I’m considering buying a 1440p ultrawide display for my gaming machine (Linux Mint, Cinnamon X.Org). Is it possible to set certain games to only use the “middle” of the display? I ask because e.g. a game like League of Legends (it’s my guilty pleasure, don’t judge! 😂) doesn’t seem like a good fit for ultrawide, and I’d rather play it at 2560×1440 “centered” with black bars on the side.

Does anybody know? Thanks!

    As the others said, windowed mode at your desired resolution, fullscreen at your desired resolution, or if neither work, gamescope.

    Gamescope will make the game believe the display is a particular resolution and force it to run that way regardless of the actual hardware.
