Fullscreen problems using Metacity
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:05 EDT
Description of problem:
(I use a 2 screen Xinerama system.)
XawTV has problems switching to fullscreen mode as Metacity prevents it from
using some space the Gnome panel uses on the other screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start XawTV.
2. Press f for fullscreen mode.
3. Looks ugly...
Actual Results: XawTV is unable to reserve full screen for fullscreen mode.
Expected Results: XawTV should be able to reserve full screen for fullscreen mode.
Compiling XawTV from latest Sources (http://bytesex.org/xawtv/xawtv_3.85.tar.gz)
solves the problem. That version seems to be capable of using Metacity
i have upgraded to 3.85. It should be available in next rawhide release.
