No way to specify startup size (geometry) in vala-terminal?

Reported by: djbclark Owned by: mickey

At least looking at http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Vala-terminal and grepping through the code, there doesn't seem to be a way to specify the starting geometry of the vala-terminal window (eg like xterm -geometry 40x20).

This is specifically a problem for me on the palm pre:

Which I'm trying to be a catalyst to make as free as possible, given their hardware choices:

As no one has yet written a tslib module for the new touchscreen hardware, so the touchscreen does not yet work with any free software GUIs as far as I know (eg can't manually resize the window).

Hmm, vala-terminla is not really part of FSO. On the other hand this trac seems to be the nearest place to fill a bug.

Mickey, comments?

  • Status changed from new to accepted
  • Component changed from interfaces to vala-terminal

Created a component for vala-terminal. After all, it's hosted on this git, so it kinda belongs to us. Will implement the requested feature.
