GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 705515
wayland: Implement missing fullscreen features
Last modified: 2021-07-05 13:47:57 UTC
The wayland fullscreen protocol allows things like scaling to fit. It would be good to support all of these in mutter.
Thanks for bringing this up. I would love to see this implemented.
If scaling support is in mutter then it could, I expect be used to sharpen up the magnified view for the gnome-shell magnifier users.
Currently the view gets more and more degraded the larger the level of magnification is, which is not ideal considering the feature is primarily for users with low vision.

MPV seems to depend on this for wayland output. Would be nice if this could be implemented.
If someone can point me in the right direction, i could have a look at it.
I started on this a long time ago in https://git.gnome.org/browse/mutter/log/?h=wip/viewport
GNOME is going to shut down bugzilla.gnome.org in favor of gitlab.gnome.org.
As part of that, we are mass-closing older open tickets in bugzilla.gnome.org
which have not seen updates for a longer time (resources are unfortunately
quite limited so not every ticket can get handled).
If you can still reproduce the situation described in this ticket in a recent
and supported software version, then please follow

Thank you for your understanding and your help.
