[Bug 1039045] Re: Wine windows can't go fullscreen


Trying out several of the Steam games and for example L4D2 opens
fullscreen but the unity launcher icons are still ther on the left and
the top panel is still there. Both of which force the whole game to move
to the right and bottom since the launcher icons and the top panel take
the rest of the screen. So one can play most of the games but the unity
launcher and top panel will still show (Taking the space of the
fullscreen with them). This also includes problems for games that need
to use the ALT key, since pressing it will make the Unity HUD appear.

Tested on Ubuntu 12.04, 12.10, 13.04 in both 32 bit and 64 bit. With
Wine 1.5.17, 1.5.18 and 1.5.19.

Since others tested other DE, I also wanted to see this for myself.
Using KDE and XFCE in my tests did give me fullscreen support. There was
no icons or anything, just the game in real fullscreen.
