Replace Dekstop with Application

Postby cocoon » Mon Aug 21, 2017 8:48 am

Trying to start instead of the desktop a application.

I configured an new *.desktop and specified width, high and fullscreen in lubuntu-rc.xml. After booting up the machine the application starts, but it uses only the half screen of the monitor (50%). it dosn't no matter if i us firefox, chromium or viewclient.

Any hint how i can achieve to get the application on full screen?

Thanks

so you want some sort of kiosk mode, where the user uses just one application, fullscreen and maximized, instead of the window & desktop manager?
explain what you want to achieve.

both points need clarification. show us exactly what you modified.

what's on the other half?
