View Full Version : glutfullscreen doesn't work

03-24-2005, 06:34 AM
hi all,
i have a simple app, featuring a call to glutfullscreen. When i run the app, instead of full screening, the applicaion runs in a window as big as the screen (but with the frame visible).
Anyone has got the same problem? I am using fedora core 3 running under GNOME. My glut ver is 3.6.
Thanks a lot...
(sorry for the bad english writing, but it has been a hell of a day)

From the documentation:

In the X implementation of GLUT, full screen is implemented by sizing and positioning the window to cover the entire screen and posting the _MOTIF_WM_HINTS property on the window requesting absolutely no decorations. Non-Motif window managers may not respond to _MOTIF_WM_HINTS.

I havn't had your problem but one thing you might want to check just in case is where you put the glutFullScreen(); function. I usualy place it in my display function. Hope you get it fixed
