RFE: virt-manager: Proper full screen mode
Last modified: 2011-07-12 18:54:35 EDT
Description of problem:
When using virt-manager with XP using a monitor of 1600x1200, virt-manager will not properly resize the guest to fit the screen. The menu on top does not go away and the window itself does not show the panel bar/start menu.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set resolution in VM to 1600x1200, observe inability to see bottom panel/start menu.
Cannot see guest screen fully
Should see guest OS fully.
The Ubuntu Launchpad bug 251055 linked here is not the same as this bug, but apparently you can't remove bug watches without special permissions.
To get rid of the menu bar we need a proper fullscreen mode like vinagre has. We could try porting the autoshelf widget that they use to python, but just an idea.
Upstream virt-manager now has a hiding fullscreen bar like vinagre.
