rdesktop window size
 
This is a totally newbie question. I opened up a command prompt in pclinux os and then ran the command rdesktop xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

When the new remote desktop window opened, the window was rather small.

I didn't want to maximize the screen, but I did want to increase the size just slightly. I thought similar to windows I could just drag the corners of the window to the size I wanted, but that didn't work.

Am I missing something, how do I increase the size of this window without going full screen?

Thank you

Jason

You can use the -g option in one of the following two ways:
1. specifying the rdesktop window dimensions you want, like WxH
2. use a percentage of the actual window, e.g. 90%

Or use the graphical front-end:

Thank you, that worked perfectly. I guess other then setting the window size when you first start rdesktop, there is no way to resize the window once you are actually in a remote session?

Not that I am aware of, but I personally use the -f (full screen) mode and use ctrl-alt-enter to toggle between maximized full screen and the Linux Desktop to navigate to other desktops. What I like about the -f option is that it will spread the RDESKTOP session across my dual headed Linux machine automatically (using NVidia TwinView drivers)

There are of course other options to improve performance over a VPN or non-local LAN. (color depth, compression, animation, backgrounds, etc.)
