|Hopefully I am barking up the right tree now. |
I originally submitted this issue to tigervnc and they sent me to you guys, so here is what's happening.
I am running on RHEL 7.4, FLTK 1.3.4-1 with X11 and for troubleshooting purposes mwm is not running and no other window manager present.
The issue is that my vncviewer window is sitting at x=1 and y=20. I want it at (0,0). What I think is happening is the FLTK in some way is expecting the window manager to require at least a 20 pixel top frame and a 1 pixel side frame. I have yet to look through the source code for FLTK so this is speculation.
What I do know is if I add code to vncviewer and set border(0) in the flt window object that I do get my window to the desired location of (0,0)

|It's hard to tell whether your post is a bug report or a user (FLTK usage) question. The FLTK STR system is used for bug reports (and RFE's), but user questions are addressed in our mailing list fltk.general. There you can find help and discuss your issue. See the FLTK home page for a link (in the box at the top right hand side) to the google groups mailing list. I suggest that you post your question there so you get a wider audience. |
That said, it may be true that FLTK makes some assumptions about the window position, but usually the WM decides where to position. Please post more information how you show() your main window in fltk.general. In general, if you don't need window decorations, border(0) would be correct and another option would be fullscreen(), but both functions may have unwanted side effects. As said above, please post in fltk.general for further discussion. Thanks.
