Customize the default size of your Terminal in Ubuntu

If you’re like me, you can’t stand the default dimensions of the Terminal window in Ubuntu. Luckily, there’s an easy way to fix that for good!

First, right-click on your Terminal shortcut, and select Properties from the context menu.

Then modify the Command “gnome-terminal” (which is the executable name) to:

gnome-terminal --geometry=150x30+600+600

The first two numbers, 150x30, is the width and height of your window respectively. The second two numbers, 600+600, are the coordinates of where you’d like the Terminal window to appear when you launch the program.



This should work in most other flavors of Linux as well.
