Start gpicview in fullscreen

Postby sirio81 » Sat Mar 16, 2013 4:15 pm

Hi all, gpicview has the nice command line option '--slideshow' which is perfect for what I need: start an image slide after boot.
The only thing missin is to have gpicview in full screnn.
I don't see any option in the --help.

Is there a way to achinve that?

Thank you.

I opened GPicView and maximized it. It now opens up in full screen mode.

If you are using Lubuntu, you should have ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml. First backup this file for safety. Then, edit it to insert the following text just above the line that has </applications> (at nearly the end of the file):

Code: Select all

    <application name="gpicview">
      <fullscreen>true</fullscreen>
    </application>

Then, run openbox --reconfigurefrom a terminal. After that, any time you open gpicview, it should open fullscreen.

Note:
If you are using LXDE on some other OS, the file may be called rc.xml or lxde-rc.xml and may have some other location!
