it sounds like a stupid question, but I hope it isnt.
I want to create a simple xterm with a fixed title. I tried:
xterm -title whatever (that is what xterm --help suggests) xterm -T whatever (according to man pages, this is the same as --title)
but well, my xterm always comes up showing username@hostname:~ in the title. I guess that this title comes from some environment variable; but I would prefer if I do not have to make a permanent change to my .bashrc or .profile just to be able to create one xterm with a fixed title?!
This is xubuntu 14.04
