I am using gtkmm-2.4 for my Ubuntu apps and to determine the size of the window for the application I use get_desktop_geometry. This returns the dimensions of the display you ask for. My issue is that when I use these dimensions to size my window, the window is slightly too big because I didn't account for the unity launcher (on the side) and the unity panel (across the top).
Has anyone encountered this issue? Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
