View Full Version : Full-Screen X Window
10-03-2000, 08:36 AM
Whene I create a Full-Screen window with glut, my kde's bars are on the window.
How can I resolve this problem?
The Tcl/TK libraries have this same problem?
Tnx very much.
well I think it's mostly GLUT's fault. GLUT uses afaik only the motiv-window-manager-hints to get a fullscreen-window. Therefore fullscreen usually does not work with non-motif window-managers (i use gnome with icewm). This fact is part of the reason why i dropped glut and now use plain GLX with OpenGL. This seems to work with most/all(?) window-managers/desktops (several people tried it out without any probs).
But if anyone gets GLUT-fullscreen working with icewm i would be glad to know...

I wouldn't say this is GLUT's fault. I've got the same phenomenon (kde's bars) with a pure X11 coding. However, this doesn't happen with Gnome.
If I'm not wrong, preferences we indicate to the window manager (such as a 0 border width) can be overwritten by the WM itself. They are only preferences not "orders".
ok, perhaps it is not GLUT's fault in the case of KDE, but in the case GNOME/<almost any windowmanager> it *is* GLUT's fault. My GLX-apps and Q3A work perfectly in fullscreen, whereas GLUT-apps fail to.
If you set the override-redirect flag for a window, the window-manager *should not* tamper with the window. If KDE/KWM ignores that then it is KDE/KWM's fault, since in that case it misbehaves, not the app.
