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?
