I found this here:
http://www.davidsimmons.com/soft/xtermhacks/

press alt+enter and enjoy full screen console inside X.

I renamed the xterm binary to fsxterm to avoid confusion with the stock xterm.

Cheers PGAS! Thanks for the ipk... been looking for a fullscreen terminal... Question - I visited the site you gave the URL to, and noticed that he hadn't prepared the ipk... did you? If so, do you have a reference somewhere that will help me build ipk's from linux source code? I want to be able to prepare ipk's for other pdaXrom users... TIA!

This version is more usable than the stock one. Thanks! smile.gif

By the way could someone please tell me how to set the background and foreground color permanently (like something more than white bg and black text)? I used fsxterm -bg black -fg white but I had to enter it every time. Or can I add the options somewhere (like .bashrc but I fail to find files like this in my pdaX), or some alias in profile? biggrin.gif

you can put something like

xterm*background: black
xterm*foreground: white

in the file /home/root/.Xresources (create it if it's not present)

or
you can add:

alias fsxterm='fsxterm -bg black -fg white'

in .bashrc

you can also edit /usr/applications/fsxterm.desktop and add the relevant options.

Thanks.
I tried the .Xresources but it takes no effects and when I . .Xresources it returns
CODE
bash: xterm*background:: command not found
bash: xterm*foreground:: command not found


I still cannot find .bashrc using find or locate. Could your please point me to the path?

I also changed the line EXEC=fsxterm -bg black -fg white in the .desktop file but the app stills opens with white bg and black fg. Did I do something wrong here?

Thanks again! laugh.gif

you don't need to source .Xresources, it should be read by xterm.

/home/root/.bashrc create it if needed.

For the rest I need to test to check the syntax

Thanks.
I created .bashrc and fsxterm now shows the desired colors.
But fsxterm still opens with the old colors when launching from icons.

[Edited]
Problem solved! Not sure whether it is necessary or relevant, but after restarting the wm it works. Thanks, pgas. smile.gif
