       vte is simply a window wrapped around the vte embeddable terminal emulation control, which
       does most of the work for gnome-terminal. vte is used mainly to	test  the  control.  Most
       users do not need to use vte directly, but use gnome-terminal instead.

       The following options are supported:

       -2, --double-buffer

	   Toggle double buffering. Enabled by default.

       -A, --antialias

	   Toggle antialiasing.  The default is that of the current GTK+ default.

       -a, --audible

	   Toggle  audible bell on/off. If audible bell is enabled, visible bell is disabled.  If
	   audible bell is disabled, visible bell is enabled. Audible bell enabled by default.

       -B, --background=image

	   Use image as background.

       -b, --blink

	   Toggle cursor blinking. Enabled by default.

       -C, --console

	   Open a "console" connection.

       -c, --command=command

	   Fork the specified command.

       -D, --dingus

	   Use dingus clicking: as the cursor moves over text matching	a  certain  pattern,  the
	   matched text is highlighted and the cursor changes shape.  Disabled by default.

       -d, --debug

	   Toggle update debugging. Disabled by default.


	   Specify the X display to use.

       -f, --font=font

	   Specify the font to use. Default font is "Sans 12".

       -G, --no-geometry-hints

	   Allow  the terminal to be resized to any dimension, not constrained to fit to an inte-
	   ger multiple of characters.

       -g, --geometry=geometry

	   Set the size (in characters) and position.

       -h, --highlight

	   Toggle highlighting.  Disabled by default.

       -i, --icon-title

	   Toggle whether to obey attempts to set the icon name, if applications running  in  the
	   terminal request this.

       -k, --keep

	   Toggle whether to keep program running after GTK main loop.	Disabled by default.

       -n, --scrollback-lines

	   Specify  the  number  of  scrollback lines. Minumum number of scrollback lines is 100.
	   Default number of scrollback lines is 100.

       -r, --color-cursor

	   Toggle whether to set cursor color to pale red. Disabled by default.


	   Reverse foreground and background colors.

       -S, --shell

	   Toggle launching a shell. Enabled by default.

       -s, --scroll-background

	   Toggle whether to scroll background image along with text. This option is only  useful
	   when combined with the -B option.  Disabled by default.

       -T, --transparent

	   Use transparent background. Overrides the -B option.

       -t, --termcap=terminal-type

	   Specify the terminal type to emulate.

       -w, --working-directory=directory

	   Specify the initial working directory of the terminal.

       vte  is designed to emulate the xterm program provided by the X Consortium. In turn, xterm
       is an almost complete emulation of the DEC VT102 terminal. vte supports	the  same  exten-
       sions to VT102 as those provided by xterm, through special escape sequences.

       xterm  is  an  evolving	program. Recent changes to xterm have been been incorporated into
       vte.  This includes emulation of the newer DEC VT220 escape sequences.

       Example 1: Launching the Virtual Terminal Emulator

       example% vte

       See environ(5) for descriptions of the following environment variables:

       VTE_PROFILE_MEMORY      Virtualize memory allocation for debugging purposes.

       The following exit values are returned:

       0	Application exited successfully

       >0	Application exited with failure

       The following files are used by this application:

       /usr/bin/vte		       Executable for virtual terminal emulator

       /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/vte     Location of developer documentation

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |      ATTRIBUTE TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |
       |Availability		     |SUNWvte			   |
       |Interface stability	     |Volatile			   |
