Can someone help how to change default Terminal windows size in XUbuntu?

After some surfing, I found instructions for Gnome. Maybe I don't understand, but XUbuntu doesn't use Gnome?

Thanks in advance.

You can configure your terminal behavior

  • 13.10 and below: ~/.config/Terminal/terminalrc
  • 14.04 and onwards: ~/.config/xfce4/terminal/terminalrc

Use the MiscDefaultGeometry option

[Configuration]
MiscDefaultGeometry=132x24

To perform a "visual" adaptation, resize the terminal window to the desired size then use stty size to determine the current window size.

For additional information see

http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/oneiric/man1/xfce4-terminal.1.html http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/oneiric/man7/X.7.html

On that last page, on X, scroll down to the geometry section.

You can also set default position: MiscDefaultGeometry=132x24+250+30 positions the window 250 pixels from the left and 30 from the top of the screen. –  Pino May 27 '13 at 11:26

The file has moved to: .config/xfce4/terminal/terminalrc –  user185359 Aug 19 '13 at 7:26
