In this bash script, I want the last command (the Chrome one) to open a maximized (or better yet, full screen) window.

Is that possible?


killall vlc

banshee --pause

clementine --play /mnt/4E46682B4668164D/Users/Fiksdal/Music/iTunes/iTunes\ Media/Music/Jonny\ Greenwood/Norwegian\ Wood\ OST/05\ Toki\ No\ Senrei\ O\ Ukete\ Inai\ Mono.mp3

cvlc /mnt/4E46682B4668164D/Users/Fiksdal/Music/iTunes/iTunes\ Media/Music/Kural/Kural/Puja\ Cropped.m4a &

sh /home/fiksdal/Google\ Drive/Scripts/foo.sh

/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome --profile-directory=Default --app-id=kefmolhnnppgijjgjcfhlpngbggjlkgf
  • The closest thing might be kiosk mode. See this. – saiarcot895 Oct 16 '15 at 17:36
  • Look at this superuser.com/questions/276923/…, maybe --start-maximized will be working for You, I've tried it in Xfce but it doesn't work for me – Jakub Rakus Oct 16 '15 at 17:41
  • Couldn't get kiosk mode to work at all. --start maximized works for the main Chrome window, but not for Chrome apps, which is the case here. It's actully an ARC APK build. I found another solution, will post it as an answer. – Revetahw says Reinstate Monica Oct 16 '15 at 20:45

I installed xdotool and used xdotool key [systemwide keyboard shortcut to full screen] It worked well.

Edit: I found that it also worked to install wmctrl and use wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -b toggle,maximized_vert,maximized_horz
