NAME

       Terminal -    X

SYNOPSIS

        [...]

       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.

       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. 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.

       Here is a summary of all the options, grouped by type. Explanations are
       in the following sections.

           X display to use for the last- specified window.

       --geometry=

           to only one window and can be specified once for each window you

           management inside Terminal

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

           Set the terminal's icon as an icon name or filename.

       --fullscreen

           you create from the command line.

       --hide-borders
           Turn off the window decorations for the last-specified window.

       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.

       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.

       ${XDG_CONFIG_DIRS}/Terminal/terminalrc
           This is the location of the configuration file that includes the
           preferences which control the look and feel of Terminal.

       ${XDG_DATA_DIRS}/Terminal/Terminal-toolbars.ui
           This file includes the user interface definition for the toolbars.
           If you customize the toolbars using the graphical toolbars editor,
           Terminal will store the new toolbars layout in the file
           ${XDG_DATA_HOME}/Terminal/Terminal-toolbars.ui.
