[LINUX] Unable to play with a non-native resolution

I recently installed FSO on my Linux system. My desktop is running 1920x1080 but I want to run the game on a lower resolution for better performance. However, doing that causes to game to appear misaligned from the screen. Is there a way to fix this?

I'm running Linux Mint 19 with NVIDIA driver 390.48.

Re: [LINUX] Unable to play with a non-native resolution
I use these two command line parameters when I want to run in a smaller resolution:
Code: [Select]
-res 1600x900 -window

Both should be able to be set in whichever launcher you're using (Knossos/wxLauncher/YAL) - if you have issues finding the correct places let me know which launcher you're using & I'll give more detailed instructions.
