Fullscreen with rdesktop / rdesktop-vrdp

It’s extremely useful to use rdesktop (or virtualbox the rdesktop-vrdp) for RDP connections to Windows hosts from your Linux workstation. This is how to use the fullscreen mode:

jonas@erebus:~$ rdesktop -f &

Exit fullscreen mode using CTRL+ALT+Enter

Alternatively, set a percentage for the screen real estate you’re willing to give the RDP session like so:

jonas@erebus:~$ rdesktop -g 90% &
