Package: supertransball2
Version: 1.5-3
Severity: minor

I read in the man page that there is an option -f for fullscreen mode,
but when I launch the command

supertransball2 -f

the game opens windowed, not fullscreen.

the following lines are from my console:

$ supertransball2 -f
Configuration: /home/fredm/.supertransball2
Data: /usr/share/games/supertransball2/
Enabled fullscreen.
Invalid rate plugin version 10002

I tried Alt+ENTER and it toggled fullscreen... maybe -f just enables this.

Closes: 590636 661457 668030
 supertransball2 (1.5-5) unstable; urgency=low
   * New Maintainer. (Closes: #661457)
   * Switch to package format 3.0 (quilt). Thanks Jari Aalto for the patch!
     (Closes: #668030).
   * Remove patch for command line option -f for fullscreen, it does not work.
     Instead improve supertransball2's manpage and suggest using the ingame key

     (Closes: #590636)
   * Bump compat level to 9 and require debhelper >=9 for automatic hardening
     build flags.
   * Merge the old patches into one and modify the Makefile. Don't link against
     libsdl_sound anymore to avoid a superfluous dependency.
   * debian/control:
   - Add hardening wrapper to Build Depends.
   - Add Vcs-fields and point to supertransball2's git repository at
   - Improve the package description.
   * debian/rules:
   - Use dh sequencer to simplify debian/rules.
   - Split readme.txt in README and changelog and install them in the
     right place.
   - Build with hardening=+all.
   * Add a desktop file, menu file and icons.
   * Update debian/copyright to copyright format 1.0.
