Comment (by Craig Treleaven <ctreleaven@…>):

 Replying to [comment:3 pbennett]:
 > Re 2 above, please check Frontend setup -> Appearance -> Theme/Screen
 Settings -> GUI dimension and make sure it is set to 0,0,0,0. If you set
 it to the actual screen dimensions the menu bar still shows above it. This
 is the behaviour under Linux. I don't know if it will be the same under
 MAC OS. Also make sure "Use Window Border" is unchecked.
 Confirm 0,0,0,0 and Use Window Border unchecked.

 > Re 3 above, This losing focus problem is one that existed with the old
 setup in 0.28 but does not happen in setup in 29. Does it happen anywhere
 else other than setup?

 Happens in multiple places in mythfrontend setup.  For example, after I
 checked the above Theme/Screen settings and pressed Esc to exit back to
 the menu, subsequent key presses just result in a delay and a beep.
 Clicking anywhere on the screen restores normal function.

 > I do not have a MAC to test on, so I cannot fix anything that is not
 reproduced on Linux. Is it possible to install MACOS on a non-apple
 computer in a VM under Linux?

 There are some people running "Hackintosh" systems but I don't know that
 it is possible to do it in a VM.  (No personal experience.)  Here's an
 article on the process:


 (Argh, be aware there is an autoplaying video.)

 Note that Apple's EULA does not permit running macOS on non-Apple
 hardware.  But some people do.
