Question CentOS 7 - Open Terminator Fullscreen


Hello,
I'm using CentOS 7, with GNOME 3, in a virtual machine on a MacBook Pro. My terminal emulator of choice is Terminator. I'm trying to find a way to have it start in full screen mode. I've searched this forum, with no joy. Mu google-fu wasn't up to the task either.

Might I get a little help, por favor,
Doug

Open Terminator and right-click-->Preferences-->Global-->Behavior-->Window State-->Maximized.

Thanks for the question. I learned something.

Habitual,
That makes it change to fullscreen. I want to make it open in fullscreen. Frank's solution did it.

killingthemonkey, I'm glad I could help. And, as I said, I learned something, because I didn't know about that setting until I saw your post.

Trying to answer Linux Questions is a great way to learn stuff.

Yep. And I spend time reading the newbie forum... At least the questions I understand.

It might help to learn the difference between maximized and fullscreen.

You're welcome.

Code:
terminator --help
