Ubuntu – way to make google chrome (running under ubuntu) open fullscreen by default


Is there a way to make google chrome open fullscreen by default? Also, is there a hotkey to make it fullscreen?

Best Answer

From the source file itself.

// Start the browser maximized, regardless of any previous settings.
const char kStartMaximized[]                = "start-maximized";

Try --start-maximized?

The bug filed regarding F11 fullscreen not working with GTK is marked fixed, and checked in 5 weeks ago. Not sure how old your version of Chrome is, or whether you're using trunk builds.
