Is there a log feature for gnome-terminal like the "session log" in Putty? I want to log whatever I have typed in the gnome-terminal.

I don't want to use pterm under Linux, I just want a gnome-terminal.

See an example log here.

You can use script (the command, not 'a script'!) to log shell sessions.

Here's some info at about.com.
