Ubuntu – way to turn gvim into fullscreen mode

gnomevim

Is there a way to turn gvim into fullscreen mode? I know that this is possible on OS X through MacVim, but wasn't able to find a way to do it on Ubuntu.

With gnome you can set a shortucut to the "fullscreen" action. Use gnome-keybinding-properties, select Window Managaer and choose Change to Fullscreen, then select a shorcut (F11 for example). This shortcut will set the current Gnome Window in fullscreen mode.

This doesn't work unless the Enable Extra WM Actions plugin is checked in the Compiz Settings Manager
