I love emacs and Awesome WM.

But dont know why, but when I maximize the emacs, it always leaves few pixels in Awesome WM. I've tried font_size_honor=false for emacs class in rc.lua but it just does not work.

enter image description here

You can see from image that emacs always leaves some pixels at bottom. My dekstop background i black in color, so it is not very clearly visible.

I would appreciate any comments, suggestions or may be a fix for this problem. Thanks!


I've this in my rc.lua:

   { rule = { class = "Emacs" },
     properties = { size_hints_honor = false } },

And Emacs does fullscreen. That said, it won't change much: I don't see my background anymore, but Emacs do nothing of the added space.

  • AFAICS, Emacs now fills that extra space.
