How to run gnome in full screen mode? The default mode is in a window.
Maybe it's better to send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, asking how to make XFree86 server (or an application) run in full screen mode.
Actually, you should head over to http://cygwin.com/ -> Mailing Lists, and make use of their search function first.
I know how to run X server in fullscreen mode. i.e.,
But when I type ``XWin -fullscreen &'' and ``startgnome &",
the X server is closed and started again.
I don't know how to deal with it.
can you tell me how gnome works?
Read startgnome.bat or /opt/gnome/bin/startgnome, then you'll know why the X server starts again.
You can issue command 'gnome-session &' after you used XWin -fullscreen.
There are two options, both involve making a .xserverrc file in your home directory. There are two ways to get a fullscreen window:
-fullscreen, which makes a new window that's fullscreen, and AFAIK requires you to do an Alt-Tab to change to another Windows window.
-nodecoration, which creates a new window without the bar at the top, or border
To use these options, put the following in ~/.xserverrc
X -fullscreen :0
Replace -fullscreen with -nodecoration depending on which option you want. For my own needs, I prefer -nodecoration over fullscreen, but I recommend anyone who wants a full-screen X session to try both out.
