NAME

       xfce4-terminal - A Terminal emulator for X

SYNOPSIS

       xfce4-terminal [OPTION...]

DESCRIPTION

       xfce4-terminal is what is known as an X terminal emulator, often referred to as terminal
       or shell. It provides an equivalent to the old-fashioned text screen on your desktop, but
       one which can easily share the screen with other graphical applications. Windows users may
       already be familiar with the MS-DOS Prompt utility, which has the analogous function of
       offering a DOS command-line under Windows, though one should note that the UNIX CLI offer
       far more power and ease of use than does DOS.

       xfce4-terminal emulates the xterm application developed by the X Consortium. In turn, the
       xterm application emulates the DEC VT102 terminal and also supports the DEC VT220 escape
       sequences. An escape sequence is a series of characters that start with the Esc character.
       xfce4-terminal accepts all of the escape sequences that the VT102 and VT220 terminals use
       for functions such as to position the cursor and to clear the screen.

       -e, --command=command
           Execute command inside the terminal

       --working-directory=directory
           Set directory as the working directory for the terminal

   Window Options
       --display=display
           X display to use for the last- specified window.

       --drop-down
           Will start the window in drop-down mode (also called a Quake-style terminal). This
           will only apply to the first window started with this option. It is advised to bind
           this to a shortcut in the keyboard preferences.

       --geometry=geometry

           Sets the window role of the last-specified window to role. Applies to only one window
           and can be specified once for each window you create from the command line. The role
           is a unique identifier for the window to be used when restoring a session.

       --startup-id=string
           Specifies the startup notification id for the last-specified window. Used internally
           to forward the startup notification id when using the D-BUS service.

           specified once for each window you create from the command line.

       --show-menubar
           Turn on the menubar for the last-specified window. Can be specified once for each
           window you create from the command line.

       --hide-menubar
           Turn off the menubar for the last-specified window. Can be specified once for each
           window you create from the command line.

           Turn on the window decorations for the last-specified window. Applies to only one
           window. Can be specified once for each window you create from the command line.

       --hide-borders
           Turn off the window decorations for the last-specified window. Applies to only one
           window. Can be specified once for each window you create from the command line.

       --show-toolbar
           Turn on the toolbar for the last-specified window. Applies to only one window. Can be
           specified once for each window you create from the command line.

       --hide-toolbar
           Turn off the toolbar for the last-specified window. Applies to only one window. Can be
           specified once for each window you create from the command line.

       --show-scrollbar
           Turn on the scrollbar for the last-specified window. Scrollbar position is taken from
           the settings; if position is None, the default position is Right side. Applies to only
           one window. Can be specified once for each window you create from the command line.

       --hide-scrollbar
           Turn off the scrollbar for the last-specified window. Applies to only one window. Can
           be specified once for each window you create from the command line.

       --font=font
           Set the terminal font.

       --zoom=zoom
           Set the zoom level: the font size will be multiplied by this level. The range is from
           -7 to 7, default is 0. Each step multiplies the size by 1.2, i.e. level 7 is 3.5831808
           (1.2^7) times larger than the default size.

EXAMPLES

       xfce4-terminal --geometry 80x40 --command mutt --tab --command mc
           Opens a new terminal window with a geometry of 80 columns and 40 rows and two tabs in
           it, where the first tab runs mutt and the second tab runs mc.

ENVIRONMENT

       xfce4-terminal uses the Basedir Specification as defined on Freedesktop.org[1] to locate
       its data and configuration files. This means that file locations will be specified as a
       path relative to the directories described in the specification.

       ${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}
           The first base directory to look for configuration files. By default this is set to
           ~/.config/.

       ${XDG_CONFIG_DIRS}
           A colon separated list of base directories that contain configuration data. By default
           the application will look in ${sysconfdir}/xdg/. The value of ${sysconfdir} depends on
           how the program was build and will often be /etc/ for binary packages.

       ${XDG_DATA_HOME}
           The root for all user-specific data files. By default this is set to ~/.local/share/.

       ${XDG_DATA_DIRS}
           A set of preference ordered base directories relative to which data files should be
           searched in addition to the ${XDG_DATA_HOME} base directory. The directories should be
           separated with a colon.

FILES

       ${XDG_CONFIG_DIRS}/xfce4/terminal/terminalrc
           This is the location of the configuration file that includes the preferences which
           control the look and feel of xfce4-terminal. Note: any update made to the
           configuration file via an external editor will be picked up by xfce4-terminal
           instances running.
