I've seen various posts about launching gnome-terminal with multiple tabs and the script below is working for me. That is to say, this script will launch gnome-terminal with various working directories or profiles. . .
#!/bin/sh gnome-terminal \ --tab --working-directory=$HOME/notes \ --tab --working-directory=$HOME/puppet \ --tab --profile=root-beamish \ --tab --profile=odyssey \ --tab --profile=root
... but I'd like to set a unique title for each tab.
In the case where a tab has its own profile I can change the title from within gnome-terminal with
Edit | Profiles | (NAME) | Edit | Title and Command and then change "Initial Title" to what I want and "When terminal commands set their own titles" from "Replace initial title" to "Keep initial title". However, I'd rather not create a unique profile for every tab. I'd like a generic solution.
I've tried adding
--title='MyTitle' but it doesn't seem to help. I'm using GNOME 2.28.2 on CentOS 6.
