Running RH 8.0 and tn5250-0-16-5.  

When /home/user/tn5250rc has:

  font_80=-adobe-times-medium-r-normal--17-120-100-100=p-84-iso8859-1 
  font_132=-adobe-times-medium-r-normal--17-120-100-100=p-84-iso8859-1 

the screen comes up with the right hand portion of the information off
screen to the right and covers only 2/3 (approx) of the CRT vertically.

When /home/user/tn5250rc has:

  font_80=-adobe-times-medium-r-normal--14-100-100-100=p-74-iso8859-1 
  font_132=-adobe-times-medium-r-normal--14-100-100-100=p-74-iso8859-1 

the green screen comes up covering only the upper left 1/4 (approx) of the
CRT.  At this setting you can maximize the 5250 screen but the displayed
data size stays the same and still only uses the upper left 1/4 of the CRT
full screen green screen.

If we could maximize the "14-100-100-100" screen and have the data displayed
(characters size) increase proportionally (2x by 2x) life would be good.

Or, if I could find a font between 14 and 17 such that it would fill (not
over fill) the CRT. Life would be good.

Or, if I could install 15 or 16 for "adobe times".

FWIW, xfontsel only shows 8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 17, 20, 24, 25, 34 for "adobe
times".

Or, is there anything in the works that would enlarge the displayed font
size when you maximize the window. 

BTW, the desktop display is set at 1024 x 768 which is needed for other
processes. 

Thanks
