9. Command line options

The following options can be used to start Multi Gnome Terminal. These will over-ride any saved configuration settings.


You can use more than one option at once. Example:

  multi-gnome-terminal --transparent \
    --font -b&wh-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-*-14-*-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1 \
    --add-window --tname="My Window" --tcommand=vi \
    --tpath=$HOME/multignometerm --tclass=Default --add-tab \
    --tname=MGT1 --hsplit --tname=MGT2 --vsplit --tname=MGT3 \
    --tcommand=mc &

This opens a new transparent Window and one Tab with vi running, and then adds another Tab (MGT1) which is split horizontally first, and then vertically, where Midnight Commander is then launched. Who says the command line is not useful? ;-)
