I am using expect to auto login on SSH from an Unity launcher, the command looks something like this:
gnome-terminal -t SSH1 -e "expect -c 'spawn ssh firstname.lastname@example.org ; expect assword ; send \\"password123\\n\\" ; interact'"
That works fine for logging in automatically, but if I maximize the gnome-terminal window, the ssh shell contents remain smaller as if the window had the default size, like this:
At first I thought it was because the gnome-terminal was being launched with the default size and when maximized for some reason the ssh stuff didn't resize, but then I added
gnome-terminal --window --maximize to the command, and the same problem remains, the window starts maximized but the ssh shell text still is the size of the default terminal.
Also if I just open a terminal and type that command on the top, I have the same problem as if I start it from the Unity launcher.
Any ideas what could cause this and how to fix it?
