Description From cendio 2018-05-09 09:41:20
OpenBox lacks support for _NET_WM_FULLSCREEN_MONITORS. This was discussed on
bug 5182, but that bug was about problems on Thinstation and is now closed.

The lack of support for _NET_WM_FULLSCREEN_MONITORS means that you cannot run
any applications with tl-single-app which wants to go fullscreen over multiple
monitors. This could be vncviewer/tlclient, x11clone, FreeRDP or some other

More than 4 years has passed, but unfortunately no progress.

According to my experience with common WMs, "xfwm4" is the only WM that works
correctly. Perhaps we should consider shipping that one instead?
