I'm using emacs 23.1.1. I set the font size in my .emacs with
(set-face-attribute 'default nil :height 100)
The problem is that my emacs is now really small. The outer box (what I call a window and what I think emacs calls a "frame") is sized normally, but the inner box (which I call a "frame" and emacs a "window", I think) is too small. I tried the suggestions here, but neither of them seem to work.
Any ideas? I'm on ubuntu netbook if that's relevant. My entire startup file is:
(add-hook 'after-make-frame-functions (lambda (frame) (progn (set-frame-height frame (/ (x-display-pixel-height) (frame-char-height))) (set-frame-width frame (/ (x-display-pixel-width) (frame-char-width)))))) (autoload 'octave-mode "octave-mod" nil t) (setq auto-mode-alist (cons '("\\.m$" . octave-mode) auto-mode-alist)) (add-hook 'octave-mode-hook (lambda () (abbrev-mode 1) (auto-fill-mode 1) (if (eq window-system 'x) (font-lock-mode 1)))) (tool-bar-mode -1) (set-face-attribute 'default nil :height 100)
Here is a picture of what it looks like. It might be hard to tell, but the "window" is taking up the whole screen; that whitespace is all inside emacs.
