Ubuntu 8.04 Terminal Can you make the terminal window transparent with a wallpaper?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 15, 2009
I have finally learned how to customize my terminal window, but I was wondering if it was possible to have it be transparent with a wallpaper simultaneously? I was also wondering if anyone knew how t change the colors and them of my menu other than just black and white. I have a custom menu button, and would like to make the menu itself look a little different. I saw a vid on youtube where someone had custom colors in there menu. Thanks for the help guys.

Ubuntu 12.04 lts issue with terminal window infrort of all windows in Unity
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 14, 2012
This is my first post here, so apologies if this is in the icorrect location etc.
I recently installed ubuntu 12.04 lts pangolin, and whilst I use Unity 2d for odd reason Terminal sits in front of all windows, All other windows are fine. Just seems to be terminal.
Also doesnt look like it is fully in front, as although i looks in front of other windows, I am actually interacting with the window behind it, and not terminal.
Dont know if anyone else is having this issue.
If I dont use Unity, works fine, however would like to use Unity
Could anyone help please if possible?
Ubuntu getting error when I open a terminal window
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 9, 2006
I'm running Ubuntu 5.10. I did a server install then installed xorg x-window-system-core then installed fluxbox from the fluxbox website, they have a version for Ubuntu 5.10. Everything going great except when I start xterm or Eterm or any other terminal I get an error then it pauses for about 20 seconds then gives me the correct prompt. This is what it says before it goes to the regular prompt:
xauth: creating new authority file /home/joker/.serverauth.7362
X: user nor authorized to run the X server, aborting.
Thats when it pauses for about 20 seconds, Then everything is find after until I open another Eterm window. Any suggestions??

I can't open a Terminal window in a Ubuntu hosted virtual machine on VMware

When I try to open a Terminal window, it just flashes, and disappears. It worked before, and suddenly stopped working.
Here is a video I made of it happening (cursor is invisible so you have to guess where the mouse is):
I tried connecting with Putty, but it just crashes when I type in a password.
How do I open a terminal window with C++ in Ubuntu?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I recently decided to start teaching myself C++ and thought a simple encryption project would be a good place to start, since it covers most of the basics (cout, cin, opening files, etc). Is there a way to have the code open a terminal window similar to the one opened when I compile and run from sublime text?
I have tried this so far, but it hasn't changed anything.
string cmd = "gnome-terminal-x sh-c 'ls-l; exec bash'";
Essentially, I would like to be able to run the program by clicking the .exe, and have the terminal where all of the input and output goes pop up.
Emacs theme not covering up the entire terminal window. The Ubuntu purple terminal background is showing on the edges
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
At the bottom of the screen when emacs is open there is a strip of purple, meaning that emacs in terminal isnt maximizing to the full size that the terminal window allows and thus the background from the terminal is showing. I know this is nit-picky but my OCD is driving me crazy. Anyway to fix this?
I would post an image but I don't have enough stackoverflow karma points yet.
Unable to rename gnome terminal window after upgrading to Ubuntu 15.04

I am not able to rename terminal window after upgrading into Ubuntu 15.04. There are three options with the right click -
Move Terminal Left
Move Terminal Right
And there is no option 'Set title' which was present on previous versions of Ubuntu.
My gnome-terminal version is 3.14.2
Ubuntu: How to I add string to terminal window title from command line?
- date: January 1, 1970
I am working on a Ubuntu VM where i have multiple terminal windows open at the same time. I switch between them many times and it's hard to keep track of which window has which purpose. So what I want to do is to issue some sort of command from the command line that would permanently alter the title of the window. One approach is to modify the following line in .bashrc to, say, add the word FOO to the title:
Then I would do source .bashrc. The problem is that I only have one .bashrc and many windows. So if I open two windows one after another without changing the line in .bashrc, I'll have FOO in both of them. So I want to issue a command from each window instead. How do I do that?
NOTE: The stuff around FOO in the PS1 line above is important too, so what I want is to essentially add a window-specific string to the generic PS1 specification above.
