Fullscreen mode doesn't work correctly for Chromium


Description Golikov Ivan 2012-03-12 12:43:30 CET
If I switch to workspace with Chromium in fullscreen mode I see xfce-panel overlapping Chromium. To hide panel I need too turn fullscreen mode off and then turn it on again.

I think this bug is reproducable for all non-decorated windows because if I set Chromium to use system frames and title bar all works great.
Comment 1 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2012-05-11 09:37:37 CEST
Works for me in 4.10
Comment 2 Evangelos Foutras 2012-05-11 10:38:25 CEST
Happens with 4.10 as well (on Arch Linux), but only if the Chromium window is maximized before going to fullscreen.

This bug might also be related: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/28450.
Comment 3 Evangelos Foutras 2012-05-11 23:24:50 CEST
Also reproducible on Xubuntu 12.04, if that helps further investigating the issue.

Issue is still present in 4.10. Attached testcase (from Arch bug report) still reproduces the issue for me (xfwm 4.10, Qt 4.8).

Run xfwm_qt.py, ensure window is maximized (M), switch to fullscreen (F), toggle menu bar visibily (H) -> xfce-panel is drawn on top of the supposed-to-be-fullscreen window.

I hope this patch fixes an issue. (Makes Fullscreen flag override Maximized)

This bug is still present in 4.10.1 although the patch has been available for weeks. It doesn't seem to affect newer versions of Chromium, but Qt apps (e.g. VLC) are still affected.
I have been using the patch for some weeks without any issues. (Thank  you,  Viktor Semykin.) It would be great if it was included in future versions.
Comment 7 Rob McCathie 2013-06-16 20:50:13 CEST
Confirming and requesting inclusion of patch.

Comment 8 Andre Miranda editbugs 2013-08-15 05:15:14 CEST
I also confirm this bug affecting VLC(2.0.8) and Xfce(4.10) on Arch Linux. Please apply the patch.
Comment 9 superm1 2013-12-03 23:11:18 CET
I can confirm that patch fixes this behavior with a Qt based application (MythTV) in Ubuntu 14.04 development.

So, what's the state of this patch? It has been merged or it's still in the "to merge/to review" list?
