How to enlarge output window (console)??
« on: January 01, 2015, 12:55:36 pm »
Hi,

my first steps with codeblocks after installing on my Linux MINT 17 machine are console applictions. How can I enlarge the small output window. (I found out, that itś possible to clear it with "system (clear);")
There must exist commands to manipulate this console-window....

You can changed what options are passed to the terminal program in Settings -> Environment -> General -> Terminal to launch console programs.
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

Much thanks,

I have allready done so. But the launched console (xterm) wasn't a proper candidate. After installing "bash", I can shedule on it's menu how big it has to be when in use.

It's not clear to me how installing bash solved your problem but I would like to share my settings for xterm as reference for others.

I use as "Terminal to launch console programs" the following command

Code: [Select]
xterm -geometry 132x50 -T $TITLE -e
The -geometry part does the resizing magic. How to specify correct parameters is shown in the man page of X.

I still use as "Shell to run commands in" the following command
Code: [Select]
/bin/sh -c

I don't know if this will help, but I hold down the control key and use the scroll wheel to enlarge or shrink. Same in the main code window. (I'm on a C with Windows 10).
