I am running Ubuntu precise. I usually rely on the ALT-CTRL-T shortcut to open a new terminal. However the location is pops up as well as its size are not very convenient and I have to subsequently use the mouse to drag/resize the terminal. Is there a way to configure the terminal's initial size and location?

From what I know, there's a way to start the terminal maximized but IDK if there's a way to manually set x and y positions, I could be wrong, though. –  Evandro Silva Nov 3 '12 at 15:46

I you right klick in your terminal window, select Profiles > Default profile. You should be able to edit your terminal's default size there.

To change the way new windowa appear, you should use ccsm.

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

Run ccsm, scroll down to the plugin called "place windows" or something, click it and you'll get access to the settings.
