I can scroll on all four edges of the screen. Warcraft III via wine runs full-screen but scrolling is buggy (this last one has to do with the compiz cube).

I want to stretch it the whole way, but when I do stretch it the whole way, it's so choppy. I haven't tried this yet, but I saw something that said the settings may have automatically been updated to be a dual-monitor setup causing the cursor to lag. And when I ult tab, the screen is still like that and I'm only using 2/3 of my screen.

It doesn't happen with top, left or right sides but the bottom still has this problem. For the first couple of days it worked fine. Enabled sound driver emulation? I'd look through all your Compiz effects for something which uses the bottom part of the screen as activation.
Under the 'Bindings' tab, expand the 'Rotate cube' options if its not already expanded (via the small triangle) and set the 'Rotate Flip Left' and 'Rotate Flip Right' to 'None' (you website here Flag Permalink This was helpful (0) Collapse - Thanks but..

Warcraft 3 does require an OK video card, especially when you are playing at a resolution of 1680x1050. I have to do the show desktop hotkey to get mouse control back.

In a terminal, run winecfg Go to the Graphics tab, select the options "Allow the window manager to control the windows" and "Emulate a virtual desktop". It just makes the game completely unplayable because I can never hover over the units because it jumps to the edge of the screen. it doesnt have this problem with wall, just with desktop cube.
