Program in TERM Full Screen. Can I run as a window?+

I'm having an issue with my small graphics programs (console) not fitting the screen at 640x480 while in KDE. The bottom 1/4 of the screen isn't visable.

What I would like to do is run them as windows. I'm thinking they would fit then. I've seen this with MAME screens.

The question is, can I run a console program (TERM) as a window and not have it blow up in to fullscreen mode (which isn't actually fullscreen lol) when it changes to 640x480 mode?

Thanks in Advance

I solved it through Allegro. I didn't actually find a way in KDE to run in a window mode, but was able to change my program to use •GFX_AUTODETECT_WINDOWS instead of just GFX_AUTODETECT. This allows me to see the entire 640x480.

Hope this helps someone,
