Why in the world do all my gnome terminals run under 1 process in Ubuntu? This is integrating things that should remain separated! I much prefer
xterm's rational mode of running one process per window.
I tried to switch some auto-started windows from
gnome-terminal so I can freeze a log file from scrolling while I'm looking at it. Unfortunately, I can no longer kill my log windows that are littering my desktop. Just accidentally killed every terminal I had open!!!
- Can I kill individual
gnome-terminalwindows as if they are single shell processes? (you know, like a normal process)
- Can I stop auto-scrolling of
tail -finside an
xtermby manually scrolling up, so I can read the log file while it's growing?
