Hildon/the window manager follows the freedesktop WM spec.



You have to set the _NET_WM_STATE property to _NET_WM_STATE_FULLSCREEN
to get the window resized to full screen. You can either do this from
within the application (like hildon does when pressing the full screen
button), or try to write a tool for it.

I can offer C/C++ example code, if somebody wants to write a tool for it
(named wmctrl may be such a tool).
