I have a Fedora 23 server connected through a Keyborard, Video, Monitor (KVM) switch. Every once a in while the Fedora 23 OS thinks the monitor has more visible lines then actually render on the screen. Which then causes all typed characters to not appear on the screen. But if you press enter enough times the line type scrolls up from the bottom. The only fix I have found is to reboot the server.

Is there a command that will force Fedora to recalculate the screen size?

You mention typed characters and pressing enter so I am going to assume you want a terminal window to be "recalculated".

I would try with the reset command or even reset -w if you are only interested in the resize calculation for your terminal.

Correct.

reset and reset -w have no effect.
