Description

roxterm is a terminal emulator.

Options

These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.

-? --help

Show description of options.

--help-all

Show all options.

--help-gtk

Show all GTK+ options.

--usage

Show summary of usage.

-d DIRECTORY --directory=DIRECTORY

Run shell/command in DIRECTORY.

--geometry=GEOMETRY

Set size and/or position of terminal according to X geometry specification.

--appdir=DIR

Application directory when run as a ROX app.

--show-menubar --hide-menubar

Whether to show or hide the menubar, overriding the profile. The default is to show it.

--fullscreen -f

Make initial terminal window take up the whole screen with no window furniture.

--disable-sm

Disable session management.

--tab

If possible open the new terminal in an existing window rather than open a new window. If used in conjunction with -T/--title the tab will be placed in an existing window with the same title template if one exists. This option overrides --zoom and --fullscreen.

--zoom=ZOOM -z ZOOM

Scale terminal's font by a factor of ZOOM (1.0 is normal size).

-p PROFILE --profile=PROFILE

Use the named profile.

-c SCHEME --colour-scheme=SCHEME --color-scheme=SCHEME

Use the named colour scheme.

-s SCHEME --shortcut-scheme=SCHEME

Use the named keyboard shortcut scheme.

--title=TITLE -T TITLE

Set window title template. May include "%s" which is substituted with the full contents of the tab's label.

--tab-name=NAME -n NAME

Set tab name as displayed in its label. May include "%s" which is substituted with the window title string set by the terminal.

--separate

Use a separate process for this terminal.

--fork

Always fork into the background. Usually the first instance stays in the foreground and subsequent invocations return once they have asked the master instance to handle their command. This option causes the master instance to fork itself into the background; the foreground process returns once the master is ready to handle further commands.

--replace

Replace any existing instance as ROXTerm D-BUS service provider.

--role=ROLE

Sets the X window system "role" hint for the window being created.

-e --execute

Execute remainder of the command line inside the terminal. Must be the final option. If there is only one following argument it is parsed in case it is a command with space-separated arguments that was passed to roxterm in quotes. If there is more than one argument they are treated as a command and arguments without parsing.
