I am running Ubuntu GNOME 15.10 with GNOME 3.18 and would like to know if there is some way to get CTRL + ALT + T to open a new Terminal window even if one is already open (that is rather than just bring the currently open one to the front)?
The funny thing is that on Unity, CTRL + ALT + T does open a new window, apparantly not on Gnome...
To make the setup:
First disable the existing command/key combination with the command:
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys terminal ""
Which will make CTRL + ALT + T "available" again for another command.
Now open keyboard settings: System Settings > "Keyboard" > "Shortcuts" > "Custom Shortcuts". Click the "+" and add the command:
to CTRL + ALT + T, where
<profilename>is the name of your profile, most likely
--window-with-profile=PROFILENAME Open a new window containing a tab with the given profile. More than one of these options can be provided.
