This is a bug in the Flash player. The volume keys on your keyboard are handled by gnome-settings-daemon, which uses a passive grab on the volume keys. The way that X works means that an application needs to have focus in order to receive keypress events, so, what happens when you press the volume keys is that the flash player window sees a FocusOut event ...

While karthick87 explains how to put VirtualBox in "full screen" mode, you should also install virtualbox-ose-guest-dkms , virtualbox-ose-guest-utils & virtualbox-ose-guest-x11 inside the virtual machine first. (Otherwise only some basic low VGA/VESA resolutions will be available.)

You can use Compiz, in particular you have to activate "Window Rules" plugin and in "Full Screen" field you write class=Gedit. Hope it helps.

If Control+Alt+F1 works you can use it to drop to a hard terminal. From there you can: Try killing the application. I use htop to find and nuke something (sudo apt-get install htop) but you can also just use commands like kill and pkill if you're happy with them. I prefer htop because it lets me see what is schizing out. It's then Control+Alt+F7 ...

To be able to scale the screen geometry, and to enable fullscreen mode of a Virtual Box guest Ubuntu we need to install the guest additions: How do I install Guest Additions in VirtualBox?

If you were using YouTube's HTML 5 player (as the "never ask again" in the popup suggests), the fullscreen setting is managed by Firefox (and therefore has nothing to do with Ubuntu or Gnome). Go to about:permissions (just copy it into your address bar), select www.youtube.com from the list and change the setting in the Fullscreen box.

I managed to go to the settings in the game and changed the window setting from boarder less to full-screen. Dota 2 now works full screen.

This option causes drawing to occur directly on the screen rather than drawing off-screen and then copying the drawn content back onto the screen. Thus, yes it can dramatically improve graphical performance. However there can be a draw-back - on some graphics cards/monitors - using this option can result in dramatic flickering. Particularly - this ...

You have a few options for a frozen full screen app : Go to a virtual terminal (CTRL-ALT-F1), issue your killall command on the offending process, then switch back to the GUI (CTRL-ALT-F7). or Create a hot-key to switch to another virtual desktop. You should be able to do that by going to system/preferences/Keyboard Shortcuts. Then scroll down to ...

I had the same problem, but i found a solution. I am using Google Chrome as default browser. When I updated it to Google Chrome 20 it also installed Flash 11.3. So you just need to turn off Flash 11.3 and turn on Flash 11.2. To do that: type in adress bar about:plugins Then at the top left corner click Extended (or smth like that) Find a Flash and you will ...

How to use Chrome browser in kiosk-mode Use it like this: google-chrome --kiosk http://example.com chromium-browser --kiosk http://example.com tested with Ubuntu 12.04, google-chrome-stable 30.0.1599.66-1 and chromium-browser 28.0.1500.71-0ubuntu1.12.04.

Compiz is known not to work too well with cube in natty. Get to the terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run command unity --reset and then go back to wall setting in compiz. And if you will not be able to get to terminal then right click on desktop and create launcher for it - command line is gnome-terminal

This was achieved using devilspie to start darktable maximised, followed by my linked answer to remove the window decoration. Note - I tried this with the devilspie "undecorate" command but that just left an annoying blank space where the decoration would be install devilspie sudo apt-get install devilspie mkdir ~/.devilspie nano ...

Kind of extreme overkill as a shell script, but it should do the trick: #!/bin/bash WINDOW=$(echo $(xwininfo -id $(xdotool getactivewindow) -stats | \ egrep '(Width|Height):' | \ awk '{print $NF}') | \ sed -e 's/ /x/') SCREEN=$(xdpyinfo | grep -m1 dimensions | awk '{print $2}') if [ "$WINDOW" = "$SCREEN" ]; then ...

I found that the HUD (ALT) and Ubuntu Menu (SUPER) keys are very annoying for any application... so the way I fixed this was changed the keybinds to something a bit more appropriate for me. This might help you, so I'm going to outline how I did this: First you need to install a program to manage Unity and other Compiz settings called "CompizConfig Settings ...

Leaving full screen mode when focus changes is a feature of the Flash plugin under Linux. There is no setting to change this behaviour, and it seems likely that it won't ever get fixed given that Adobe is pulling back on development of the plugin.

I think full screen is designed for getting more space, so tabs do not appear in full screen. Shortcuts: Ctrl + Page Up or Ctrl + Tab: Next Tab Ctrl + Page Up or Ctrl + Shift + Tab: Previous Tab F11: Enter/Leave Full screen Ctrl + T: New Tab Ctrl + W: Close Tab

It's rather workaround then solution, but what You can do is to remove this shadow completely. To do so type commend below - it generally only renames the file, doesn't remove it. sudo mv /usr/share/unity/6/panel-shadow.png /usr/share/unity/6/panel-shadow.png-removed After that restart Unity by typing unity in alt+f2 console or in Terminal. You can also ...

Developer here! Just thought I'd let you know, that in the latest release of Race The Sun (1.1), there is an in-game option to enable full-screen. If you launch the game it should direct you to the download page. Hope that helps.
