Hi,

I am running Xubuntu Karmic with Xfce 4.6.

My objective is - to run an application on startup using a shell script in fullscreen mode. The auto-start is working fine. However, the Xfce menubar and system clock are visible. I want my startup application to cover entire portion of the screen.

For ex. I can switch the Xterm window (or any other window) to full screen mode by pressing Alt+Space and then select fullscreen from the menu.

Is there command option where I can specify such that the window should open in fullscreen mode?

I don't know if there are specific options available for XFCE, but for X in general, this may be interesting for you:

Thanks a lot. I am now able to make the window fullscreen using commands xwininfo and wmctrl as mentioned in the thread that you suggested.

Thanks again.
