How do I move and resize the xfce4-terminal by command line?
The problem is that the command
echo -ne '\e[3;0;0t' does not re-position my
xfce4-terminal and has no apparent affect.
man xfce4-terminal and other answers suggest it should.
xfce4-terminal emulates the xterm application developed by the X Consortium. In turn, the xterm application emulates the DEC VT102 terminal and also supports the DEC VT220 escape sequences.
The goal is to write a script that creates a few terminals and sets up my working environment without needing to click and resize my terminals to my comfort.
What does work is
echo -ne '\e[8;40;80t' which the causes the terminal to resize correctly. So why not moving the window?
Other information that I am unsure may affect anything:
I have tried other numbers such as the sequence
'\e[3;100;100t' but nothing seems to relocate the terminal window.
I am actually running ubuntu and installed and launch with xfce4 after unity started having issues from an update.
xfce4-terminal 0.6.3 (Xfce 4.10)
