Description Need Real Name 2005-08-02 09:49:55 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050719 Epiphany/1.6.3 Description of problem: I have twelve gnome-terminal screens (in tabs or windows) on my destop, all doing similar things. Remembering which one does what is a pain. I know there is already an RFE for drag and droppable tabs, so I won't suggest that. It would be nice if there was a way to differentiate between all the screens, by use of colour and labels (i.e. rename this tab). It would be nice if there was a screen-like option where a window which gets new activity (or stops activity) "barks" in some way, e.g. the tab might flash. Thanks. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: x Additional info:

I use change profile for exactly this sort of feature. I create profiles with different background colors and title string segments then apply those profiles to terminal tabs or open new terminals as a certain profile. -jef

I see what you mean. I think it does provide the functionality, but it's put at a level where it's less useful than it could be. It would be nice to have it more easily accessible, i.e. right-clicking a tab. I'll try it out though.
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2005-08-02 11:13:10 EDT
I think your idea fits for pre-arranged profiles that you know you will use. e.g. you might have a kernel compile profile and a xen hacking profile and a cvs profile. I won't really have set profiles like this. I'd have to use "yellow profile", "blue profile", etc. This is where the quick access to customising terminals would come in useful (but also the ability to change tab colours).
Comment 4 Jef Spaleta 2005-08-02 11:21:26 EDT
You can define profiles however you like. If you want "yellow profile" you can have "yellow profile".. the profiles are flexible enough to allow this, if that is how you want to use them. State information is saved by saving the type of profile a tab is using. If you want different tabs to have different remembered configurations when you bring the session back up you are going to have to define profiles to remember that information. The change profile and edit current profile items exist in the right-click menu when you right click in the terminal area. Is that really less useful than right-clicking the tab? A profile defines more than just the title.. it lets you change several aspects of the terminal display. If you want to move the whole terminal right-click area to the tab as well..fine. But i wouldn't call the right click menu on the display area useless. -jef

I've been playing around with this, and I think for this to be useful, the ability to label a tab quickly is what would be valuable. The "I have activity" option would also be good.
Comment 6 Need Real Name 2005-10-19 08:49:44 EDT
and the ability to save scrollback to a file would be good too, but that's (spookily similar bug number) bug 161900

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd. Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and either update the target product or close it ? Thanks.

Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained. Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the corresponding Fedora version.
