RE: Full screen app events

First of all you didn’t mention your OS. In my understanding this lies
beneath gtk level. Long time ago I ended up writing device filter drivers to
eat all events completely on MS Window 98. It resulted in predictable café
customers behavior. In spite of the message box they thought computer is
frozen and kept rebooting it. After n-th attempt they talked to

For linux, I guess you have to hack X. Google is your helper lists freedesktop org/msg12525.html

Subject: Full screen app events


   Is there any way to consume keyboard and mouse events in a GTK app? I
want to develop an internet cafe app and I must 'block' the computer once
the prepaid gets out using a full screen blocking window. The user must no
be able to bypass the blocking window using any keyboard shortcut. Any
advice on this?
