Some questions on Xstart



I use Xstart to remotely bring up dtterm terminals from our Solaris8~9 machines.

I usually have multiple terminals up at the same time and it's some times quite confusing because they all say "Terminal" at the title bar. I want to be able to keep track of what terminal is what.

I use the Windows taskbar to switch terminals. When the terminals are minimized to the taskbar, they all look the same: "Terminal".

I am wondering if there is an option to change the titlebar.

Also, is there an option to start the terminals at a different starting location? Currently, whenever they are invoked they start at the left top corner.

In the Excution Command box, try to use command as below:

/usr/dt/bin/dtterm -ls -geometry 80x24+30+200 -title title_you_want -display $DISPLAY

For more information about the geometry specification:


Solved? Cheers~
