Hello,

Since Nautilus Terminal 1.0, you have to create the configuration file manually.

Here is an example of config file (~/.nautilus-terminal):

    [general]
    #The terminal height (lines)
    def_term_height=5
    #The terminal default visibility in new windows? (1: Visible, 0: Hidden)
    def_visible=1
    #The terminal position (1: Top, 0: Bottom)
    #NOTE: it's not recommended to put the terminal on the bottom
    term_on_top=1

    [terminal]
    #The shell to use (Nautilus Terminal use the user's defined shell by default)
    shell=/bin/bash

regards,

may be i sound like a fool..well i am a newbie..

i have created a file ".nautilus-terminal.conf" in my home directory..

it contains

    def_term_height=15
    def_visible=1
    term_on_top=1

    shell=/bin/bashains

still its not working...

Hello,

you have to put *exactly* the following lines:

[general]
def_term_height=15
def_visible=1
term_on_top=1
[terminal]
shell=/bin/bash

Then, you have to restart Nautilus:

nautilus -q # Stops Nautilus
nautilus # Start Nautilus again

Regards, :)
