    This might help or be a duplicate don't know: askubuntu.com/questions/22413/… Stolen from this post: echo -ne "\033]0;SOME TITLE HERE\007" will set your title and your tab to "SOME TITLE HERE". Might depend on the terminal you use. This worked for me with Gnome Terminal & Terminator. – Patient32Bit Jan 16 at 7:02

  • Why have you flagged 14.04? The link provided by Patient32Bit worked on 14.04 LTS, but I didn't have as much luck with my 19.04 (but I didn't try them all) Why flag 14.04? – guiverc Jan 16 at 7:45
