spicec: remove annoying info pixmap
Last modified: 2011-02-22 13:47:14 EST
Description of problem:
There is this insanely annoying semi-transparent pixmap overlaid on the
top of the spice client screen. All it does is tell me I am running the
spice client, which I knew when I started the spicec program.
It obscures actually useful information from the virtual machine, especially
when I'm running a maximized program on the KVM.
Please eradicate it utterly, or if there is some demented reason it seems
useful to someone, please at least provide a spicec option to disable it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It is always there.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Bring up spice client to view a KVM console.
Annoying pixmap at top center of screen.
Some way to avoid being annoyed short of rebuilding from source after
patching the code.
I've been poking around in the source and it appears to be the image
referred to as INFO_IMAGE_RES_ID that I'm talking about.
I agree the info image is annoying. I have a patch which I'll attach here. If accepted I'll also put it upstream.
