I have a very interesting issue with xfce4-terminal and I don't know how to fix.
The geometry settings are scaled extremely small. By that, I mean I have a geometry of 80 cols by 40 cols and I get a window that is effectively 27x3 (see below), which I think is the very minimum it will open. If I specify 120x80, it's roughly the same.
However, if I change the settings in preferences to something outrageous like 5000x750 I get a normal sized window that doesn't need to be resized to be workable in. This happens regardless if I set it in preferences or I launch it from CLI with the
/usr/local/bin/xfce4-terminal --geometry 5000x750
I am using the Monospaced 12pt regular font, but I have tried changing to others to see if it had any effect, but nothing gives.
I don't have this issue in Xterm - I get an 80x40 window when I launch it. I also don't have this issue with any other application that I lauch; just xfce4-terminal.
If anyone knows how I can fix this, I would be greatly appreciative.
FreeBSD 11.1, Xfce 4.12.
