Is it possible to run mplayer in fullscreen in xmonad?

When I use the -fullscreen switch or f command it does nothing.

You can put fstype=none in your ~/.mplayer/config.

For more discussion about this see this issue in the xmonad issue tracker.

This helped but without = sign. The switch should be only fstype none. – xralf Sep 2 '11 at 13:25
