Re: How to disable compositing ONLY on full-screen windows
You probably need to unredirect the window manager's frame window and not your application window itself. In addition, if the composite manager uses the Composite Overlay Window, that will probably get in the way of your application working correctly. To really work reliably, you'll need to have some sort of handshake between your application and the WM. I don't know if there's a standard for that... Compiz just unredirects fullscreen windows whenever they're on top of the window stack when the option for it is enabled. If you're customizing the WM, using a window property is probably the right way to go.
