I am currently exploring the application Terminator. Using commands...

terminator --profile pi --layout max --execute kismet

In the preferences in Terminator you can set some various settings such as Fullscreen. Setup a profile and a layout in the preferences. The "pi" and "max" in the command are just the names of the profile and layout I created. One thing I was tumped on was getting rid of the scrollbar, this is located in the layout under "Scrolling", it can be disabled. Executing this command in lxterminal launches Terminator with the desired results. I'm using a Raspi3 with Raspian, so lxterminal. Probably this weekend I'm going to incorporate this into a bash script and add it to init.d per your Warpi 2.0 tutorial and see how that works.
