I just installed Mint with Mate on my new PC. I typically have login sessions on half a dozen machines open. I open them using a short alias and try to keep an overview by giving them different background colours. I have lots of lines like the following in my .bashrc:
alias hector="xterm -bg 'spring green' -T hector -e 'ssh -X firstname.lastname@example.org'&"
Is there an equivalent to the -bg and -T flags in Mate, or do I need to install xterm after all?
Thanks in advance,
