On Fri, 19 Sep 2003 17:24:15 +0200, Sir Jan D. scribed thus:
It is true that Metacity (the current Gnome window manager) does not
allow you to move windows above the screen (i.e. y coordinate less than zero), but this is a Metacity bug. Maybe you can run another window manager?
Some that even allows you to specify that the window in question shall
have no decorations at all (most except Metacity can handle this)?

It is not a metacity bug - there is an agreed upon protocol for full
screening windows, and override-redirect is not it.


To Kazu: I'd recommend you research the latest EWMH specification, that
will show you how to properly fullscreen windows.

This requires XSendEvent.  It is not available from elisp.
It is also not a solution that works on all window managers out there.

But it might be a good idea to make an interface to XSendEvent from
elisp so Kazu can use it.
