Is there a way to use Emacs 24 in fullscreen mode? The Emacs wiki seems to imply that it has been disabled, but that there are some workarounds / patches.
It doesn't have to be "true" full screen, but I like to work without having the OS menubar on the top and launcher at the bottom.
In the end, it is not clear how I can implement these patches or workarounds, which one I should use and / or if I should just install emacs <= 23.3.
My current .emacs includes the following (which allows me to use F11 to toggle fullscreen under Emacs 23 in Linux)
(defun fullscreen () (interactive) (set-frame-parameter nil 'fullscreen (if (frame-parameter nil 'fullscreen) nil 'fullboth)) (progn (if (fboundp 'tool-bar-mode) (tool-bar-mode -1)) ;; no toolbar (menu-bar-mode -1) ;;no menubar (scroll-bar-mode -1) ;; no scroll bar ) ) (global-set-key [f11] 'fullscreen)
