Launch Xterm in fullscreen and without decoration (desktop independant, wmctrl)?


A solution on Linux that comes all the how to make an xterm in
fullscreen is alt+f11

A real solution that should be given might be to reply
using a bash code for that.

It is easy and possible using wmctrl.

anyone already made the code (likely maybe before I must dig with it )?
