Force fullscreen for all applications

I' wondering if it's possible to force the default status of applications set at fullscreen on Gnome (Wayland) ? It will give us a lot of pixels... I don't get why it's not already the case by the way

Re: Force fullscreen for all applications

Here https://askubuntu.com/questions/154377/ … s-in-gnome is a setting that configures whether large windows should be automatically maximized in GNOME/mutter.
Is this what you are looking for?

Re: Force fullscreen for all applications

I think what you want to do is to launch all applications maximized by default.
The aforementioned setting will only make "large" application windows become automatically maximized and it will probably only work under Gnome.

Frankly, I don't know if such a setting exists, you would have to look at the documentation of the desktop environment/ window manager you are using.

But I believe it would be possible, for many applications, to modify their shortcuts containing some sort of

--maximize

option.

You said you are only using GDM which is a display manager, what desktop environment/ window manager are you using?

Re: Force fullscreen for all applications

Nah not to launch all applications in fullscreen, but just get rid of the title bar in ALL applications...
Im using Wayland as window manager.

I thought there were an option throught Gnome or Wayland config file but man there are a lot of things so i was wondering if anybody did already look at it

Re: Force fullscreen for all applications

Why not fullscreen, because some applications such as nautilus or gnome control center do not use actual title bars but a weird integrated title bar... that's looks kinda dope. So now i figured out that is actually Xorg title bars that i need to get rid of, and i really don't know how... I was using Pixel Saver extension but it's not working anymore

Perhaps https://github.com/hardpixel/unite-shell is what you are looking for. I also found an extenstion called GTK Title Bar that does something similar.
P.S. The extension does not seem to be very stable on my machine.

GDM has nothing to do with window managers, it's a desktop manager who's only purpose is to launch the relevant DE/WM.

Thanks for the precision ! Sometimes it's a bit confusing. So yeah i got gdm at desktop manager and wayland at window manager.

That still makes no sense, Wayland isn't a DE or WM either. You still haven't told us which Desktop Environment or Window Manager you're actually using.

Re: Force fullscreen for all applications

Lol yep you right, hm Wayland is the display manager right. So I'm using gnome shell at window manager, and gdm at desktop environment. Is that the right words ?

Re: Force fullscreen for all applications

You probably use GDM as the display manager and Gnome as your desktop environment. Wayland is only a protocol used to communicate between the display server and the applications.
X11 is a communications protocol, with a common display server called X.Org. The desktop environment only has to provide a window manager. X.Org also supports another additional component called the compositor. It allows to blend different windows with transparency and offer different effects. Gnome provides both a window manager and compositor, probably in the same application.
Wayland is another protocol that is positioned as a replacement for X11. With Wayland, all three components (display server, window manager and compositor) are merged into one application that is commonly called a "Wayland Compositor", and each desktop environment or window manager has to implement their own. Gnome does that in mutter and/or gnome-shell, I'm not completely sure.

Re: Force fullscreen for all applications

So Wayland is the display server protocol, gdm is the display manager and :

extra/mutter 3.32.2+43+gb7f158811-1 (gnome) [installed]
    A window manager for GNOME

I guess i'm using mutter as window manager.

I thought i couldn't say that gnome is my desktop environment cause i don't have a lot of packages installed from the group gnome.

Sorry for my lack of vocabulary, i will make more efforts the next time.
