alias G='gvim -fg white -bg black -geom 80x45 '
and have in .vimrc
which works as expected and gives me a gvim that looks like vim in a tty, except that the 3 lines lost by removing the menu and toolbar are gone, and the remaining geometry is 80x42.
Making the initial geometry 80x48 to compensate does not work as this asks for a window taller than the screen, and apparently is just ignored. How can I get rid of the menu and toolbar and also maximize the window height?
