Subject: [gentoo-user] trouble with modify-frame-parameters
Date: Mon, 11 May 2015 00:21:45
1 I execute the following function in *scratch* on a fresh emacs -Q
3 (modify-frame-parameters ; for 2560x1600
4 nil '((fullscreen . fullheight) (width . 176) (left . -1300)))
6 My screen is 2560x1600. Emacs version is 24.4. System is gentoo/gnome.
8 The frame does become fullheight and the width does become 176.
9 However, left is not correct (it should be flush left but is nearly
10 centered.
11 The weird part is if I execute the same command again (a second C-j in
12 *scratch), the frame moves to the correct, flush left, position.
14 An explanation would be appreciated.
15 thanks,
16 allan
18 PS If I use the more natural (left . 0) the frame moves near the left
19 edge but is not flush left (even if executed twice).
