Skyrim: Quit to Desktop freezes window

Hello,

I am running Skyrim under Fedora 22 (Kernel 4.1.3-200.fc22.x86_64) and POL 4.2.8. So far, the game launches and works, but I have one last problem:

Quit the game is not possible: When I click on "quit to desktop", the game window freezes and I cannot move the mouse anymore, but Skyrim isn´t closed. I can go to an open terminal and kill the appropriate process, e.g

 

michael  23068 35.5  0.0      0     0 ?        Zsl  09:32   0:16 [TESV.exe] <defunct>

As I launched POL from command line, I looked if there is any output as soon as I clicked on "quit to desktop", but unfortunately, there is none at all, so no log for this.

Can somebody please help me on this?

Greets,

michael

Are you using the virtual desktop in Wine Configuration?
That usually helps with managing windows.  Otherwise, I experience a log of games crashing when quitting.  Normally the process will end on its own.
Also it might be Steam causing the problem.  Try turning off the In-Game Community Overlay in Steam.

I configured wine to use the virtual desktop and deactivated the in-game community overlay in Steam ; unfortunately, both settings didn´t help.

What do you mean with "Normally the process will end on its own."? Should it end after some time itself? On my side, I wrote a little script that I placed in /usr/bin:

#!/bin/bash
ps aux | grep TESV.exe | grep Skyrim | awk '{print "kill -9 "$2}' | sh
ps aux | grep TESV.exe | grep defunct | awk '{print "kill -9 "$2}' | sh

You may use this - BUT BE CAREFUL: It will end all running processes of Skyrim, even those running correctly without any further question.

Under all: Is this a "normal" behaviour of POL/wine? If yes, I can accept it (even if it´s surely an interessting point why exactly this happens).

Nice "work around"

This is not normal behavior for PlayOnLinux.  Some games just get stuck or frozen on exit with Wine.  You can always try other versions of Wine, but the best way is to use the PlayOnLinux Debug.

The debug is great for seeing feedback when something is breaking or crashing.
I don't particulary remember Skyrim having a problem exiting, but I have definitely experienced it with other games.

I can confirm this but in Linux Mint 17.2 Rafael X86_64 in every WINE header I've tried.. at least 5 so far. Plays perfect for hours.. but has to be killed remotely after trying to exit. UGH

I just simply ALT-Tab out of it and then reboot with the menu on the second monitor. ;)
