gtk3-nocsd - transparently disable Gtk+3 client side decorations (CSD)
[ command arguments
[ command arguments ... ]
runs a command in the environment where Gtk+3 client side
decorations (CSD) are disabled, by using LD_PRELOAD to load the library
that overrides some GLib, GDK and Gtk API calls
with customized variants.
The command to execute. It may be either a full path or the name of the command
in PATH. In case command cannot be found in PATH, gtk3-nocsd will fail.
- command arguments
Arbitrary number of arguments to pass to the command being executed.
USAGE VIA SYMLINKS
If a symlink to gtk3-nocsd
under a different name is called,
will assume that the name it was called under is the name
of the command that is supposed to be executed. It will look for the command
in the PATH environment variable, excluding itself, and execute it with the
proper environment variables set. This is useful when is not desirable to add
gtk3-nocsd to the system-wide LD_PRELOAD or if it should be applied only to
When using gtk3-nocsd with setarch (including alias such as
linux32), or anyway with chroots with different architectures than the
host's, make sure to install the matching architecture version of
libgtk3-nocsd.so.0 both in the setarch environment and the host's
environment. Note that the gtk3-nocsd binary must then be installed in
a system path (/usr/bin, /usr/local/bin, ...), so that it will set
LD_PRELOAD to just the library name and let the dynamic linker find it
automatically - allowing the dynamic linker to pick the version for the
correct architecture. If gtk3-nocsd is not installed in a system path,
it will use a full path, allowing only for a single version of the library
to be used.
