I wanted to have it so that when I open a terminal, it is opened maximized. However I set the Default profile to open a terminal fullscreen when I open a terminal and... recursion.

The terminals open so fast that I can't access the profile options, and when I ctrl-C or ctrl-Z, nothing happens or if I do it faster, then ALL of the terminals close.

How can I fix this, without a terminal?

I'm using a Netbook remix of 10.04 I believe.

I made this change using the dropdown menu of an open Terminal. It opened a dialog box, I chose to edit the Default profile, and this opened another dialog box with multiple tabs, I changed to another tab and there was an option to "Run your own command" in which I put "gnome-terminal --window --maximize", thinking that this would REPLACE the current command that opens a terminal, not run it when a terminal opens.

SOLVED: Found this, top answer worked. Summary: Run command using Alt-F2, use gconf-editor to uncheck the use-custom-command bool.

I don't have 10.04 (Lucid) to test this on, but would suggest ..

login in text-only mode, to this user, and type:

sudo rm -r ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal

When next login, Gnome Terminal should re-create default settings.

you have to open ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/%gconf.xml and search for the line starting with '<entry name="use_custom_command"' and change its value to false [value=false]
