I've found many places that tell you how to change tab names in KDE with dcop, but I can't find any info on doing it within xfce.

Can anybody point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Try


echo -ne "\e]2; tab name\a"

Change 'tab name' to whatever you like.

I do apologize ... this is tcsh

The only thing that happens is I get "-ne" echoed back.
