I want to change default position of terminal. I changed ~/.local/share/applications/gnome-terminal.desktop

It works for manually opening terminal from applications menu but not for shortcut ctrl+alt+t :c

I specified following groups:

[Desktop Entry]
[Desktop Action New]

As I see 1st is for opening terminal from applications menu / launcher

The 2nd for opening by right clicking on terminal icon and selecting "New Terminal"

All i want is to know name of group that will change behavior of ctrl+alt+t

.local/share/applications/gnome-terminal.desktop:


[Desktop Entry]
Name=Terminal
Comment=Use the command line
TryExec=gnome-terminal
Exec=gnome-terminal --geometry=205x10+0+1000
Icon=utilities-terminal
Type=Application
X-GNOME-DocPath=gnome-terminal/index.html
X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Bugzilla=GNOME
X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Product=gnome-terminal
X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Component=BugBuddyBugs
X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Version=3.6.2
Categories=GNOME;GTK;Utility;TerminalEmulator;
StartupNotify=true
OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity;
Keywords=Run;
Actions=New;
X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=gnome-terminal

[Desktop Action New]
Name=New Terminal
Exec=gnome-terminal  --geometry=205x10+0+1000
OnlyShowIn=Unity;  
  • I am sorry, but I don't understand what it is that you are trying to achieve. What do you for example mean by: I want to change default position of terminal.? Furthermore, you can make Ctrl+Alt+T do anything you like. – Jacob Vlijm Jun 1 '15 at 21:21
  • Please post the contents of your current .desktop file – Helio Jun 1 '15 at 21:26
  • When i press ctrl+alt+t it opens terminal in upper left corner. I want to have it at bottom of screen – Pikacz Jun 1 '15 at 21:44

You would set a new custom keybinding in System Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Custom Shortcuts

For command use gnome-terminal --geometry=205x10+0+1000 after creating the shortcut click in right side to set a binding.

You may want to use a slightly different binding to check out or go ahead & use Ctrl+Alt+T which will unset the current for Launchers > Launch terminal.
