Saved Terminal Sessions
Authored by: kholburn on Jan 17, '02 11:59:40PM
I have real problems with saved terminal sessions. They pick up a whole lot of default settings so if I save a session it always has defaults like "never close the window".
The advantage of the following method is that the terminal sessions created don't have a fixed location and will open in the next spot, slightly right and below the previous window.
When I get a session the way I like it, the right title and colors and command, I save it in the default location which is :
/Users/me/Library/Application Support/Terminal/
as say:
/Users/me/Library/Application Support/Terminal/bad.term
Then I open the PropertyListEditor/Developer/Applications/PropertyListEditorOpen the saved .term files by option-command dropping them on the PropertyListEditor icon in the dock. There are probably other ways to do this.
Then click the triangles till you get a list:
/Root/WindowSettings/0/
I always have to change ShellExitAction to 0 (Zero)
Then I delete these 3 keys
WinLocULY
WinLocX
WinLocY
Then save as ~/Library/Application Support/Terminal/good.term
Try it out.
