It looks like we need to add the lines below to the bottom of

xt5250.VT100*allowFontOps: True

Thanks, that fixes it on Ubuntu 8.04 (GNOME) as well. It's great to
have this terminal emulator, it's one of those things you use every day
and never give a thought to until something like this comes up.

OK, almost four years later; still using tn5250 every day, couldn't live without it! But now my team has switched to Kubuntu (KDE) on our workstations, and we see this again. We are running tn5250 0.17.4 from a .deb I found online (since it's no longer in the Ubuntu repo). I do see the above lines in /usr/share/tn5250/XTerm (which references this thread!):

xt5250.VT100*allowWindowOps: True
xt5250.VT100*allowFontOps: True

But the window is not resizing when I do something that triggers 132-column mode (e.g. STRSQL).

KDE has its own terminal called Konsole; I tried installing xterm and running it like this:

xterm -e "tn5250 <machine-name> env.TERM=IBM-3477-FC"

but it still doesn't resize. Any KDE users out there have any ideas?
