Hello FreeBSD Gnome community ;)

How can I set the window's position (and size) of gnome-terminal when it appears after start? Probably with gconf-editor but how? What I want is: Gnome-terminal appears at the top-left of the screen, the length of the window is the length of the screen, the height is something like 33% of the height of the screen.

Thanks

Unfortunately you can't set the size or location. You can however modify the shortcut that starts gnome-terminal and add "--geometry 132x43" for example.

Thanks @SirDice.

But too bad for Gnome :(
With gconf-editor you can also set the default size_columns and size_rows.

Finally I get exactly what I want by adding --geometry 132x43+0+0.
