I have used the answer to How do I find the window dimensions and position accurately including decorations? in my bash scripts, and had good success with my Silentcast application on Xfce, but now that others are using it, they are finding some problems in Ubuntu 14.04, Unity. Here is one problem caused by the output of:
xwininfo -id $(xdotool getactivewindow)
Relative upper-left X: 0 Relative upper-left Y: 0
Which I use to calculate the width of the borders and the height of the titlebar. They should not be 0.
Does anyone know how to get the width of the window borders and the height of the titlebar in Unity for Ubuntu 14.04.
Or, how to directly get the full window dimensions?
I have filed a bug against xorg for the xwininfo package https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=84348
I have also found out information about creating your own theme in Unity under Ubuntu 14.04: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Unity/Theming
It seems like the answer is in that theming page somewhere, but I don't understand it yet especially since I don't use Ubuntu or Unity.
