I’m not a mac user, but when I have to work on one I find in really frustrating that I can’t make my apps full screen. Recently When I started working at Classic Graphics I was provided a Mac Book Pro to work on and quickly started longing for full screen apps. I had solved this problem in the past, but couldn’t remember exactly how I did it. I spent a few nights searching and finally came to the solution I had found a few years back. The solution was found here And the package depends on SIMBL These two packages together provide you with full screen apps including Terminal.app. I’m now back on Linux so it’s a non-issue, but if I ever need it again this should make my search shorter. Hopefully Apple will add support for sending apps full screen before I have to work on one again.
