Window Manipulation

With Xfce on the Devterm A04 and A06, it can be difficult to manipulate windows that are taller than the screen. There are two lesser-known modifiers that can aid here:

These two modifier combinations can move a window from any position, regardless of how far the title bar is above the top of the screen (or the resize handle is below the bottom).

Screen Adjustments with Xrandr

If the screen size is still too small for your use with the Alt modifiers above, you can use Xrandr to enable panning or scaling on the display. To enable panning:

xrandr --fb 1280x960 --output DSI-1 --panning 960x0

Or to enable scaling:

xrandr --output DSI-1 --scale 2x2

Fractional values are valid too (like --scale 1.5x1.5)

SDL2 Joystick Profile

Some games rely on SDL2 gamepad detection, which won’t detect the DevTerm pad and buttons by default. To get the gamepad detected, add the following line to the .profile file in your home folder:

export SDL_GAMECONTROLLERCONFIG="03000000af1e00002400000010010000,ClockworkPI DevTerm,platform:Linux,a:b2,b:b1,x:b3,y:b0,back:b8,start:b9,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,"

And log out/log back in.
