possible duplicate of How do I change the default working directory with which gnome-terminal opens?
.bashrc file of the user you want the console to open in Desktop and add this at the end:
Save and close the file.
If you prefer to add settings but keep it separate from the original
.bashrc you can edit the file and at the end put
if [ -f .bashrcc ];
Then create a file called
.bashrcc and all entries will also be loaded when loading the shell.
This isn't useful to most but in my case I have a
.bashrc that is just a link to a file that I have synchronized over several pc's and this setup allows me to change the shell on one users without it changing it on all the pc's that the
.bashrc is synchronized with. For instance if I wanted one user to have the availability of the alias
findzombie I would add
alias findzombie='ps -A -ostat,ppid,pid,cmd | grep -e '^[Zz]' '
.bashrcc of that user and only he would have the use of that in his shell. Again probably not useful most and editing the
.bashrc file is enough but though I would include it anyway
