Re: fullscreen vs alt+click/alt+drag

i'm porting a fullscreen, kiosk-like app from the mac to linux/x86.

everything's hunky-dory so far, except that there is a critical feature of the app which isn't working as it should:

i need the user to be able to alt+leftclick my app's interface (ie: the main, fullscreen window) to gain access to certain features, but when i do this on linux (in _almost_ every window manager), of course the window (even though it's fullscreen), is able to be moved around. i realize this is standard fare for linux gui apps, but not for kiosk apps or games.

i tried looking through some source for a couple games, but i'm not seeing anything unusual that might take care of this problem, even though the games themselves definitely do not allow alt+dragging of the game window.

so, what's the trick?

Maybe you can grab the screen while your app is in full screen mode?
