Window Managers IceWM is a lightweight window manager for UNIX-like systems. Although widely used, it is often underrated - there is hardly any IceWM-related content on the Internet. This article is my attempt to share my experiences as a longtime IceWM user. It contains tips and tricks, usage scenarios, and makes use of examples whenever possible to better demonstrate IceWM's features and capabilities. Finally, the article is meant for those with some familiarity with UNIX, but who are new to IceWM.

fullscreen issues with icewm
by Anonymous on Fri 23rd Jul 2004 00:40 UTC

I've had a few fullscreen issues with icewm.

mplayer full screen used to have the toolbar regardless in fullscreen video playback until i added


Which works but it's kinda clunky in that windowed apps can now cover the taskbar.

Also a psx emulator (epsxe) fullscreen mode stays a zoomed scrollable app, where I can scroll down and see the taskbar even with this setting. At first I thought it was epsxe but it doesnt happen in other wm's.

If I right click and choose fullscreen, epsxe becomes a normal fullscreen. I tried making it a fullscreen app in icewm prefs but couldn't get it working properly as the emu spawns another window for the actual game.
