how many lines does your console show

as per bleach's suggestion... "a how many lines does your console show thread."

because i dont actually use qnub (i use the bitmap font called "clean", iirc), and my terminal is urxvt in a scratchpad (or in yeahconsole, depending on wm) filling half my screen height, my magic number for this thread, is:

64.

i was kinda surprised it came out at such a suspisciouslly uncanny number.  64 lines of text in my terminal, that i set based solely on covering half the screen.

i counted by hand... i dont suppose there's a command that will magic up the answer of how many lines are in the console, is there?  (likely maaany ways to skin that particular cat).   ~~edit~~

stty size

thnx Pandachips
~~/edit~~

i imagine some of you will know your answer automatically, having set it to some specific number...

how important is the line count in your terminal?  do you have a bottom limit, and upper limit?  what applications help define those parameters?  is your number derived from the window size, the font size, set in .Xresources, the terminal's own config, or what?  if it's of any interest.  ^_^

how many lines does your console show?

Re: how many lines does your console show

Depends on which one I open:

SR-71·Black·Box  (Hey I fly the #! modified version of the SR-71 around)
15 Aug 13 | 14:27:28 ~

    $ stty size
39 118
 
 15 Aug 13 | 14:27:33 ~
    $ 

BlackBox II (full screen no window decoration) is:

 15 Aug 13 | 14:28:32 ~
    $ stty size
71 239
 
 15 Aug 13 | 14:28:34 ~
    $ 

This:

or maybe you have found (my old fave) "clean", which will be available to you in crunchbang once you enable bitmap fonts.

would be giving me migraine headaches squinting to see it.

Hey, I like the font, it's easy on my tired old eyes, I'm a bifocal man.  ... I'm being - ME!   tongue

Re: how many lines does your console show

80 columns, 24 lines windowed, and 95 columns 28 lines when I feel like doing something full-screen, usually for CLI-based games (with a dramatically bigger font tongue)

Although now that I see it I really quite like that super-compact terminal intoCB posted.

Re: how many lines does your console show

Mine shows as many lines as I want, since scrollback is set to unlimited.   ]:D

But since you probably meant visible at once... I typically set screen geometry to 132x44.  I find that most comfortable for log viewing at work, so it naturally carried over to my home rig.

And yes this is scrapping for a topic.  But what does that say about we who post here?    wink

Might be scraping the bottom, but after all, we love do #! for the little things.
