Using the default Awesome WM settings, Flash videos from youtube.com are fullscreened just fine*: youtube.com fullscreen screenshot

The same type of video on store.steampowered.com is both sized and positioned wrongly: steampowered.com "fullscreen" screenshot

  • Cropped at the bottom.
  • Top right corner about a third of a screen width away from the right edge and about half a screen height away from the top edge.

The fullscreen mode windows have virtually identical state, as shown by their xprop output:

* The weird shape is because I'm using a right tack layout, and I had to crop away the bits of the right part which are not actually shown on the monitor. I took the screenshot after restoring my custom settings, but the desktop looks the same (minus the tag names) as the default.

  • I've had similar problems with fullscren flash and other window managers such as kwin and openbox; so this may not be specific to awesome. – virtualxtc Feb 4 '14 at 7:40
