SYNOPSIS
vte [--antialias] [--audible] [--background=image] [--blink] [--color-cursor] [--command=command] [--console] [--debug] [--dingus] [--dis- play=display] [--double-buffer] [--font=font] [--geometry=geometry] [--highlight] [--icon-title] [--keep] [--no-geometry-hints] [--reverse] [--scroll-background] [--scrollback-lines] [--shell] [--termcap=terminal-type] [--transparent] [--working-directory=directory]
DESCRIPTION
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.
OPTIONS
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.

Disabled by default. -d, --debug Toggle update debugging. Disabled by default. --display=display 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 integer 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.

EXTENDED DESCRIPTION
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 extensions 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.
