    Question 12.04 - Changing default terminal size using Ctrl-Alt-T

    In 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) by default, using Ctrl-Alt-T to launch a terminal window in Unity opens it at a size of 80x24.

    I know how that adding "--geometry WxH" to the gnome-terminal launch parameters will change this.

    But here's my problem: I don't know WHERE to make this change so that the CTRL-ALT-T functionality in Unity will actually launch the window in the size that I desire.

    Does anyone know which file I need to edit to make this happen?

    (Note: I already have created a shortcut on the launcher that has my desired sizing, but I want this to work with CTRL-ALT-T as well, which I have not been able to figure out.)

    Thanks ahead of time!

    Sincerely,
    MrChips

    If you want a new default size then why not just change in the terminal's 'Default profile' preferences
    (edit > Profile Preferences > 'Use a custom ..'

    Well, that was just too easy. I'm afraid that I am guilty of assuming it would be harder to set than that.

    Thanks mc4man! That solved it.
