#9589 closed Patch - Bug Fix (Won't Fix)

[PATCH] libmythui: fullscreen doesn't cover gnome panel with compiz

Reported by: Lawrence Rust <lvr@…> Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - User Interface Library Version: 0.24-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: fullscreen gnome panel
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

It's been a bit of an annoyance for me and the source of several past bug reports that when mythfrontend is run fullscreen on a Gnome desktop using Compiz effects then the upper and lower panels are not covered, unless auto-hiding is enabled.

The problem can be overcome by installing CompizConfig? settings and enabling "Legacy Fullscreen Support" in workarounds - implying that this is a MythTV bug. However, on investigation it appears that it's actually a Compiz bug that's easily worked around by making the window visible before setting the fullscreen state. The attached one-line patch does this.

  • Milestone changed from unknown to 0.24.1
  • Owner set to markk
  • Status changed from new to accepted
  • Version changed from Unspecified to 0.24-fixes

Slightly different approach applied to master in 3ad6c81aa83491b7e6d2.

If there are no reported side-effects, I'll backport to fixes in a few days.

libmythui: Revert recent Compiz/fullscreen window fixes.

Some multi-screen setups (TwinView?) are still broken despite an
attempted fix. I can't honestly see any combination of initialisation
sequence that fixes both the Compiz issue and doesn't break Twinview
setups, so reverting until someone can figure out a better way.

I have far too many tickets to deal with, so leaving this to someone who has the time and inclination.

This went through several unsuccessful iterations. Time to put it out of its misery.
