So I'm using Kubuntu on my laptop. Awhile back, I made Compiz work with it via some tutorial online. But since then, whenever I open an application that starts in fullscreen mode, I have to resize the window in order to use the window's exit/minimize/maximize buttons.
So I can only fullscreen some certain sites' videos. Youtube works sometimes as does another (entertainment) site.
Both are using Flash, I do not have YT set to use HTML5.
Clicking fullscreen freezes the video but it does not show as fullscreen. Audio continues working. I can hit Esc to close out of the non-functioning "fullscreen" video, but then the smaller embedded one does not start.
Oh yeah, also when using VLC as a playlist it seems to switch between 2 players. I might be able to remove fullscreen from 1 of them for the other to then be in fullscreen. I then try to come out of the one in fullscreen but it won't let me unless there is no active video in it. Even if I pause I can't change it.
I want to use the onboard keyboard to enter text into a form in a website I have open in firefox. Ideally I want to run firefox in fullscreen mode. In non-fullscreen mode onboard comes up no problem, but when I enter fullscreen onboard disappears, and doesn't show until I leave fullscreen mode again.
I am running 11.10 and i need to have a vnc window for the connection to my windows 7 box (booo hiss etc) , i have two screens attached to my pc.
i would like to have a fullscreen dual window VNC window on one of the two workspaces of my ubuntu desktop , currently i can get close to this by manually resizing the vnc window as big as i can on the second workspace when it opens .
