       This manual page documents briefly the roxterm command.

       roxterm is a terminal emulator.


       These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
       two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.

       -? --help
           Show description of options.

           Show all options.

           Show all GTK+ options.

           Show summary of usage.

       -d DIRECTORY --directory=DIRECTORY
           Run shell/command in DIRECTORY.

           Set size and/or position of terminal according to X geometry specification.

           Application directory when run as a ROX app.

       --show-menubar --hide-menubar
           Whether to show or hide the menubar, overriding the profile. The default is to show

       --fullscreen -f
           Make initial terminal window take up the whole screen with no window furniture.

           Disable session management.

           If possible open the new terminal in an existing window rather than open a new window.
           If used in conjunction with -T/--title the tab will be placed in an existing window
           with the same title template if one exists. This option overrides --zoom and

       --zoom=ZOOM -z ZOOM
           Scale terminal's font by a factor of ZOOM (1.0 is normal size).

       -p PROFILE --profile=PROFILE
           Use the named profile.

       -c SCHEME --colour-scheme=SCHEME --color-scheme=SCHEME
           Use the named colour scheme.

       -s SCHEME --shortcut-scheme=SCHEME
           Use the named keyboard shortcut scheme.

       --title=TITLE -T TITLE
           Set window title template. May include "%s" which is substituted with the full
           contents of the tab's label.

       --tab-name=NAME -n NAME
           Set tab name as displayed in its label. May include "%s" which is substituted with the
           window title string set by the terminal.

           Use a separate process for this terminal.

           Always fork into the background. Usually the first instance stays in the foreground
           and subsequent invocations return once they have asked the master instance to handle
           their command. This option causes the master instance to fork itself into the
           background; the foreground process returns once the master is ready to handle further

           Replace any existing instance as ROXTerm D-BUS service provider.

           Sets the X window system "role" hint for the window being created.

       -e --execute
           Execute remainder of the command line inside the terminal. Must be the final option.
           If there is only one following argument it is parsed in case it is a command with
           space-separated arguments that was passed to roxterm in quotes. If there is more than
           one argument they are treated as a command and arguments without parsing.
