Normally I like it when a terminal window pops up immediately after startup, since I'm a heavy CLI user in linux. However, my preference is to have the terminal maximized, particularly on my laptop, and the standard xfce4 startup execution leaves the terminal window to standard size.
I've tried the following:
- Checked the .desktop files in both /usr/share/applications & /.local/share/applications
xinitrcin /ect/xdg/ for terminal startup. A change here resolved an issue with both xfce & gnome screensavers running simultaneously, but did nothing for the terminal issue.
- Checked Application Autostart in
xfce4-session-settings, but there's no default terminal entry. When I add one, two terminal windows pop up on startup.
According to several guides I've found, editing the
xinitrc file is key to the startup. However, I found no explicit terminal execution calls in that file.
What is needed to modify the default terminal startup settings?
After further investigation, it turns out it was a setting in GNOME that set the process off. I switch between GNOME, KDE and xfce for desktop environments, and the terminal popup was based on the GNOME startup settings. When that was modified, the terminal now shows up full-sized with no problems.
