Thanks for the shortcut tip guys, I didn't even think to check that. Looks like it might be disabled by default (it was for me), but it can be set in settings. I also just discovered that the Gnome Tweak Tool can force a maximize button onto the UI, which is another way to solve the problem.

@defaultspatula Thanks, he's baby 6/6. So yeah, life is pretty busy. I was logging in to tell you about the gnome full screen shortcut, but Hi-Angel beat me to it :P

@DefaultSpatula did you try pressing Gnome's shortcut for "fullscreen"? Typically it's Win+f, though not sure about Gnome. It's also possible that you occasionally pressed that shortcut, and the compositor remembered the state, so every time you were opening the app, it was restoring the last window state.

An FYI that might save someone out there a headache or two: I don't know which package update or random sequence of events caused it, but one day Trillian's chat window decided to go fullscreen on me. Under Gnome, Trillian doesn't provide a fullscreen button on the UI so it shouldn't have been possible for it to go fullscreen and I had no way to undo it.

My solution was to use v0.23 of devilspie and the "unfullscreen" option like so:

Devilspie only had to do its thing once and then I deleted the config file as it was no longer needed. Everything's back to normal.

@xyon: Congratulations! Thanks for making some time to update this package; I'm sure your life has gotten very busy!

Thanks for the help folks; I've been busy having a baby, so I've not paid much attention to the AUR for a bit. I've updated this with the PKGBUILD supplied by DefaultSpatula.

I've been in touch with Kevin about the icu package dependency. They just released v6.1.0.4 yesterday that resolves all those issues. FYI: The libzip library hacks are also no longer needed.

Use this PKGBUILD, folks:

Wow, that seriously screwed up. Ha-ha, I didn't even know comments support some kind of formatting. Well, here's the pastebin then

Sorry, I don't really use trillian (I have it for some short experimental purposes) so can't take over the package; however after recent upgrade I started getting lots of errors with libs of icu package. I noted that trillian was linked to -59 icu version directly, so I was about to make a hacky package for icu-59, but then figured I could as well rather make newer PKGBUILD for trillian and share it. Here it is:

Tried to install 6.1, but new version does not even start for me. Seems like some webkitgtk problem:
trillian: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: cairo_gl_surface_get_width

Update: Actually it works. I just had to recompile webkitgtk (which took a long time), then it works.

BTW, does anyone got Fedora build working on arch? Since fedora has GNOME 3.24 as default DE it could be better integrated with this DE (which I use on arch). I tried to install it from RPM using medified PKGBUILD, but I ended up with trillian not starting and with this error:
trillian: /usr/lib/ version `' not found (required by trillian)
trillian: /usr/lib/ version `' not found (required by trillian)
Unfortunately adding links does not help:
mkdir -p ${pkgdir}/usr/lib
ln -s /usr/lib/ ${pkgdir}/usr/lib/
ln -s /usr/lib/ ${pkgdir}/usr/lib/
