xfce4-terminal does not advertise a keyboard shortcut for "Clear Scrollback and Reset," although you can pick it from the Terminal menu. Is there a way? Thank you.


To Clear Scrollback and Reset in xfce4-terminal without using the mouse, use the keyboard combination Alt+t+c.

Note that this can only be done when the xfce4-terminal menu is visible. To toggle the menu, press F10.

You can do custom configure hot keys via config file.

nano ~/.config/xfce4/terminal/accels.scm

Find and replace for set up hot key Ctrl-Shift-l Clear Scrollback and Reset:

(gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/terminal-window/reset-and-clear" "<Primary><Shift>l")
