[SOLVED] Change default gnome-terminal directory

Post by enchance » Sun Jan 03, 2010 10:52 am

The terminal always opens in the default directory of /home/username. Is it possible to change this to another directory like ~/Desktop or maybe /data?

It's not that hard to train a pengiun to do stunts. Just say, sudo roll-over or sudo play-dead.

Wasn't sure myself. Found this thread that should do the trick - http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions ... al-288622/
