Let me just say thanks in advance.

I am having issues getting google-chrome browser into full KIOSK MODE with no browser bar on a linux platform

Looking through the google forums I have found numerous postings on how to get Chrome to show full kiosk mode BUT

tried to execute with --kiosk but doesnt seem to get the job done.

I dont know if this is platform specific or not, but any useful information would help.

I know F11 will display the browser in full kiosk mode, with no browser bar BUT is there a way to do this with a linux script and no need for a monkey pressing F11??

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

See the Issue 23145 on Google Code for this feature. Looks like you can get this by running it with --kiosk --incognito --no-context-menu to get what you want.

thanks for the response. I will give it a test tonight or in the morning and get back to you. – Brandon Ellis Apr 27 '11 at 23:39
Ok this does work, but I want every bar gone. incognito seems to remove 1 portion of the actual bar. – Brandon Ellis Apr 28 '11 at 0:19
