xpdf unable to go to fullscreen due to xfwm4 re-resizing window


Description Lasse Bigum 2005-10-27 12:22:04 CEST
xpdf has a switch that enables it to show a PDF in fullscreen. However, when 
doing this, it seems like xfwm4 resizes it again to keep it within the desktop 
size. Fluxbox handles this correctly

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start xpdf with a pdf in fullscreen: "xpdf -fullscreen some.pdf"
2. xpdf resizes so it fills the entire screen
3. xfwm4 resizes it to have the borders and window stay on screen.

Actual Results:  
See above.

Expected Results:  
Expected xpdf to fill up the entire screen with the PDF.

I consider this as a bug in xpdf, sorry. 

There is a stadard way to achieve fullscreen, plus xfwm4 already has hooks for
old "legacy" apps that don't follow the standards.

I don't plan to add yet another hook just for xpdf...

Okay, fair enough. Thanks for the answer.

Couldn't locate a bugzilla for xpdf, so have tried filing it with Gentoo 
instead, will see what happens now :-)
