Tried that. No change. The only thing that has worked, so far is the
left-control + right-mouse button.

IIRC, xt5250 ignores the font_80 and font_132 keywords unless _both_ of
them are specified. Please try setting both font_80 and font_132 to
something (even if it's just font_80=fixed) and see if that helps.

Another thing that you appear to be doing wrong (though, it might just
be the e-mail you posted) is that you're doing "xt5250 brcc2" and your
config file is "BRCC2". The names are case-sensitive. So BRCC2 is not
the same as brcc2.

Good luck

I'm trying to make xt5250 scale up to fill a whole window and increase the

.tn5250rc file. I'm going to paste the info here and hopefully one of you
can tell me where I went wrong..
host =
env.TERM = IBM-3477-FC

I'm invoking it from a terminal window (for testing purposes) as follows
"xt5250 brcc2" and it connects just fine, but it's in a small window maybe
6" tall by 8" wide (at most) and I want it to be full-screen. How the heck
do I do that? I was looking at the man page, and I thought I had it
out with the env.TERM and the font settings, but that doesn't seem to have
any bearing on the matter. :(
