Description

Hi,

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 and want to launch MC 4.7.0 in gnome-terminal in a maximized window without a menu bar. So I create a desktop launch button that executes the following command:

gnome-terminal --hide-menubar --maximize -e mc

Clicking the button opens a gnome-terminal in a maximized window with no menu bar, as expected, but the MC doesn't display on all of the window. It looks like this:

Launching this from Alt-F2 gives the same effect.

Show the result of command

echo $LINES $COLUMNS

24 80

I know already that the culprit is the gnome-terminal, so the next question should probably go to the gnome-terminal support team...

Well, gnome-terminal / vte are basically unmaintained, so you'd better submit a patch directly. I might be of help if you are willing to maintain gnome-terminal, since I know some of the Gnome developers.

Thank you for your offer of help, but I'm afraid I can't also maintain gnome-terminal at the moment. By the way, it does set the correct geometry but it somehow runs late. If you send it a WINCH signal, MC redraws its display correctly. I solved the problem by setting --geometry=140x52, which corresponds to a maximized console window on my display.

Damnit! No one wants to maintain vte :(
