I've an application that I want to start via an entry in the upper gnome panel using a .desktop file, it has to run inside a terminal.
#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Terminal=true Icon[en_US]=/home/USER/bin/APPDIR/logo.png Name[en_US]=APPLICATIONNAME Exec=REALAPPLICATIONCOMMANDLINE Path=APPLICATIONDIR Comment[en_US]=COMMENT Name=APPLICATIONNAME Comment=COMMENT Icon=gnome-panel-launcher
That part works fine.
But the terminal is still titled 'Terminal', and to differentiate it from the other terminals I have running I'd like to change the terminal's title.
I've found one way to do it, but it requires that you run the terminal command, thus
Exec=gnome-terminal --title APPNAME ...ArgsToRunRealApplication...
instead of the actual command you want to run.
I'm hoping that there's either a parameter, or another Key=Value pair that I just haven't found yet, to set the title, without using gnome-terminal directly to run the command.
I suppose I could write a script that would set the title, then run the application, but that's only a little better than using gnome-terminal.
