Hi,

When I launch Xplane (on steam), I get a popup with three options,

-Play Xplane,

-Launch Game Editor, and

-Aerfoil Maker

I select play, whereupon the screen goes black for a short period of time, and then the size of certain objects on the screen doubles (drop-down menus on games such as Factorio, the mouse pointer, icons for files on the Desktop), and the size of the UI for Firefox halves...

However, the game never launches. I can restart my laptop to get rid of the resolution/object size issue, however Xplane will not launch after said restart.

I have not yet tried launching Aerfoil maker/Game editor, but I expect the same thing would happen.

I am on a linux distro which uses the Debian kernel, on a laptop with

-16GB ddr4 ram;

-intel i5 8250U 1.6-3.4 GHz, 6mb cache, 4 cores, 8 threads;

-running on an ssd with 50GB of space left

-the screen, if this matters, is 1800*3200 pixels...

I hope you can help,

Thanks
