I have a
fluxbox environment that uses Eterm to open a telnet connection to my server.
I set Eterm to have the biggest fint possible, but it's not full-width. Is there a way to set Eterm to make the content fit the window size?
Not exactly. A clearer question would help. Here are the possibilities. The term screen refers to the computer's display, while window refers to the terminal emulator itself.
- Some terminal emulators can stretch their window to match the screen size. But they draw their characters using a grid which may not evenly divide into the screen size. If
Etermused TrueType fonts, its developers could have provided for scaling the character-grid to more closely approximate the screen's limits. But it uses bitmap-fonts, which cannot be adjusted so easily.
- In switching to full-screen, some terminal emulators do not necessarily "see" the full size. You can work around that using
resize, which determines the window's actual size and tells the shell about it.
