[PATCH] remove title bar on full screen
Last modified: 2015-02-17 14:16:25 EST
Description of problem:
Modern laptops and screens are widescreen. This means that a full screen title bar ends up wasting a significant portion of the screen. Consider that a title bar is 25 pixels high, on a 768 tall screen. This means that 3.25% of the screen is wasted on a title bar when fullscreened! This is even after I have reduced font sizes etc.
The attached patch gets the window to hide the titlebar when maximized. This helps increase the available screen space for content of the terminal. It has no effect on a non-maximised window. Additionally, the precedent is set to follow this behaviour as this brings gnome-terminal inline with the behaviour of nautilus.

We're trying to avoid the hide-titlebar setting nowadays - it was a quick fix early on, but it has considerable problems, starting with the fact that the close button disappears entirely, leaving many people unable to close that application. And no obvious way to unmaximize, leaving them unable to get the close button back...
It is much better to redesign the application to use a header bar, which avoids these problems while still making the titlebar area available for application content.

of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
