How do I tell maximus to remove window decorations?

Asked by hackel

The maximus documentation is still rather sparse. How do you control the options for maximus? It seems to be configured by default not to remove the window decorations, at least the title bars are still visible. Also where do you enter specific window rules? Or are these features mentioned on this website not finished yet?

Find the schema file which comes with maximus (data/maximus.schemas in the tarball, normally installed in /etc/gconf/schemas or maybe /usr/local/etc/gconf/schemas) and add it via

gconftool-2 --install-schema-file=...

Then you'll find some settings for /apps/maximus in the Configuration Editor, where you can check an "undecorate windows" box and specify the exclusion list. HTH

(PS. To whom it may concern: the plural of "schema" preferred by literates is "schemata".)

Heh, odd that Launchpad feels it necessary to speak for me! In any case, that is what I wanted to say. I actually figured it out shortly after posting this just by using gconf-editor, but I forgot to update the solution here. It was not necessary for me to install the schema file manually as the Ubuntu package had already taken care of that for me.
