RFE: Hide menu bar to get more space for virtual screen
Last modified: 2014-09-07 18:58:45 EDT
Description of problem:
A virt-viewer (or remote-viewer) window uses space for the menu bar that would be more useful for the actual virtual machine window. This is most annoying for me on my 1920x1080 display since a 1280x1024 virtual machine won't quite fit (but it would fit if I could get back the menu bar space).
It would be really handy if there was a way to hide the menu bar, and even handier if there was a command line option to go with it so I could start with the menu bar hidden.
The remote-viewer program could also benefit from having a -title command line option I could use to give the window a title containing the name of the virtual machine (something I happen to know when I start remote-viewer which I could provide today without waiting for some hypothetical protocol extension to provide the VM name).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The menu bar never goes away :-).
Steps to Reproduce:
window too cluttered with space I'd like to use for other things
all my screen space are belong to me
This bug originated from the thread in bug 811384.
Just bumping this to fedora 18 since it still seems to have no way to hide the menu bar.
Since this is an RFE, moving to the upstream tracker
