How can I make Gnome terminal stay on 'top'?

Asked by BC7333 on 2008-07-20

Using GNOME Terminal 2.23.4.2

I often use the terminal and would like for it to stay on top of all the other windows.. would make cut and pasting commands easier.

Is there a way to do this?

nopes,

You need to edit the registry using gconf-editor. (give the following command in a terminal)

sudo gconf-editor

Goto apps -> metacity -> windows_keybindings, insert a value (right click ->edit key) <Alt>+a to toggle_above.

If you are using compiz

Enable Extra WM(Window Manager) Actions. Check the properties, and insert ALT+A to Key field for Toggle

Always-On-Top action.

You can also simply right-click the title bar and toggle the option.
