xine full screen mode
I've found some odd behaviour with xine and am wondering if anybody can think of a solution.
* Computer running Ubuntu 8.10 with the default Gnome Desktop/Metacity Window Manager
* Nvidia driver for Nvidia GeForce2 MX-420
* Two user accounts, Account-A was the initial account that was configured upon install. Account-B was added after install using the "Users and Groups" GUI.
When logged in using Account-A, Xine can be launched straight into fullscreen mode no problem, using either xine -f or xine -F from the command line, and Xine goes full screen properly.
When logged in using Account-B, Xine will always leave the Gnome Panels at top and bottom of screen exposed when going full screen, using either xine -f or xine -F from the command line. (If I press 'f' twice after Xine is launched, then the correct fullscreen is acheived)
When logged in using Account-B, Xine will always launch underneath other windows when launched with just the command xine
I can use sudo xine -f to get a correct full screen when logged in as Account-B, but I don't want to have to run Xine using sudo.
Does anyone know what is the problem?
PS: this is not the same problem as the known xine/metacity problem where the xine GUI does not appear in fullscreen mode.
