Asus Eee PC netbook tip / howto: setting initial size of xfce terminal window

(Nederlandse versie niet beschikbaar)
back to Eee PC netbook notes and tips index

xfce is the window manager used for Eeedora. The default shortcut key to start a terminal is Ctrl + Alt + T. One way to modify the initial size and position of this window:
  • open ~/.config/Terminal/terminalrc (someone wrote to me that this file has now moved to ~/.config/xfce4/terminal/terminalrc)
  • change the line with MiscDefaultGeometry, to (for example):
    MiscDefaultGeometry=80x40+0+0
    (40 lines of 80 characters wide) (the +0+0 positions the window 0 pixels from the left, and 0 pixels from the top of the screen, i.e. in the top left corner)
