I'm curious if anyone would have any advice for this experience I'm having...

I am running the Awesome Window Manger and X.. I do not use Gnome or KDE or any other window managers.

I wrote a simple Java program and I am running it with appletviewer. The .html file that I run my applet from sets the canvas width and height to 500x500. When I resize the window, by holding down the meta key and right-clicking my mouse, the appletviewer window resizes, but the canvas does not. In Gnome or KDE, when I resize the appletviewer window, the canvas area also resizes.

Could this have something to do with how AwesomeWM is resizing the window?

I'm not sure if this is an appropriate question for this forum, so I apologize if I shouldn't be asking this here.

There was a problem related to the window manager name (which was what I suspected). The solution is to install the wmname utility which is in the portage tree.

Here is a link to the utility for more detailed information.
