Hulu Desktop Window Size Creep

November 27th, 2010 by rlaager

This work-around has been sitting in my ~/bin for quite a while now, but I thought I should share it with the world…

If you’re using Hulu Desktop on Linux and you find that the window expands every time you go through a maximize/minimize cycle, the following script should help. It deletes the saved size each time you launch Hulu Desktop. Assuming you have ~/bin at the beginning of your PATH, save it as ~/bin/huludesktop. and mark it executable.

#!/bin/sh

# Work around the ever-expanding window bug.
sed -i "/^\(height\|width\|pos_\)/d" .huludesktop

exec /usr/bin/huludesktop "$@"
