Problem with panel in KDE4 and using 3D

Recommended Posts

Hi, when I use 3D and for example start to watch a movie and set the player to fullscreen mode, my desktop Panels became over the video screen and hides part of the video. If I set to panels that other windows can cover them when I maximize any window, it covers them. But I do not like this. I want only when I use fullscreen mode for some application to cover the panels, but not maximization. For example when I start TORCS in fullscreen mode the panels start to blinks because both want to be on top of other.


So, is anybody know any resolution about this problem?

Common problem with compiz which AFAIK will be fixed some time spring 2009.


What you can do is to if KDE;

kwin --replace


if Gnome

metacity --replace


Then launch the game.



If it works you can build a script to turn off compiz, launch the game, when exiting the game it will start compiz up again.

Another solution is to use fusion-icon, not sure if it works in KDE, but it works in Gnome.
