When working on certain projects, I routinely open a number of terminals, navigate each of them to various directories and resize and position them on my desktop.

Is there any way to save this configuration, so that I can come back to this state easily?

Ideally I would like to save the number of terminals and for each terminal:

  • The position on the monitor
  • The window size
  • The current working directory

I'm using gnome shell, but I am very open to trying other desktop environments.

  • What window manager or desktop environment are you using? The WM or arguments to the terminal program can handle position and sizing. – casey Jul 1 '14 at 18:38
  • @casey, I'm using gnome shell – drs Jul 1 '14 at 18:41
  • You may find interest in this. – user44370 Jul 2 '14 at 20:12
