    Question XTerm

    Okay, I'm new to Linux and Ubuntu is my choice and I am loving it. But also I also learning C Programming and currently I'm using code::block. The console I used is the XTerm but I don't like how it looks because the window is very small as well as the font.

    Here's what I mean:



    I hope you guys can help a super beginner like me.

    Re: Help with XTerm and code::block

    I'll suggest you spend some time in trying C programms in Terminal. To open terminal press Ctrl + Alt + T
    Here is a tutorial I found after a quick google search, there might be others better than this but it'll give you a start.

    Also it is not mandatory but try using vim as text editor, its powerful light, and everything is done by keyboard only, no need of mouse, so after a little practice you can achieve great speed. To install it type in terminal:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install vim
    Vim comes with and embedded tutor. To run its tutorial type following in terminal:
    Code:
    vimtutor

    Ahh. Yes sir I'm aware of it. I just noticed right now after I received replies. I'll not do it again. It just occurs because my connection is not stable and I re-click the post because I thought It did not post successfully. So I humbly apologize guys for my mistake.

    Yes, I'm using it right now. By the way, everything is okay. I did some couple of research and change the default console and I'm now using gnome-terminal. Thanks!

    Re: XTerm

    Hmmm... I have another problem which is happening since I installed ubuntu 12.04. (I dual boot, Windows 7 and Ubuntu)

    I adjusted the brightness settings. But whenever I turn off and turn on again my laptop (https://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/K43SJ/) the brightness is again on its full settings. So I keep on adjusting the brightness every time I use my laptop. Also the bluetooth also doesn't work. But everything else works fine.


    Second, why is that the Grub menu seems to be too big (I have installed ubuntu on my dekstop but it's not like this) and also the Ubuntu start-up logo is also too enlarge/big (Although I already activated the recommended graphics driver for my laptop which is GeForce GT520M). But everything with regards to video are all okay. Its just so bothering seeing the Grub and Ubuntu start-up logo is too big.

    Heres some SS:






    'Another thing is that, sometimes the Shutdown and Restart mess up which doesn't work properly. Sometimes when I click shutdown and restart it will just log off.

    You really should be starting a new thread for each problem. These ... and I have another problem ... threads don't work well. Folks decide which thread to answer based largely on the title -- which isn't changing.
    Ubuntu 16.04 Mate, Mint 17.3; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
