How to start a application with full-screen ??


Hi, I'm using fvwm95 and i want to start mozilla firefox automatically
right after i logged in by xdm. Now it works.

But i wonder that how can i start mozilla firefox full-screen automatically???
cause i want the users see the mozilla firefox occupying the whole desktop
with no space left right after they log in into the system.

any help??

Try using -height 600 and -width 800 on the command line you use to start the browser (for 800x600 displays - adjust accordingly).

edit the properties of your application shortcut and try adding -fg, or in kde resize the window to full, then right click on the top border, then click remember window settings (for a really clean look, click on no border, then use alt-f3 and remember window settings)

actually we use a putty/vncviewer to do remote connection to a server....which means
i'm not doing the work locally.

Our procedure is like:

1. Tunnel by putty
2. Vncviewer
3. a login in prompt show up
4. login, then mozilla-firefox automatically starts up (and should be full-screen)

Problem is that when mozilla-firefox starts up we failed to make it full-screen.

Moreover, when i change mozilla firefox to full-screen manully and
then click on the border, what shows up was the vncviewer settings, not the properties
of mozilla firefox.


any suggestions?

Hi all,

now i've figured out how to start mozilla full-screen (by using autohide extension).

But i want to disable the F11 button and the full-screen option in the right-click
menu so that users can't switch back to window mode from full screen mode, do
anyone knows how to do that?

you can start programs by editing the .xinitrc file adding lines like this

exec /[yourpath]/mozilla-firefox height=600 width=800 &

if that helps at all
