Set Gnome Terminal Title In Gnome 3.14+

Posted by Weston Ganger on March 22, 2015

It really rattled my cage when Gnome terminal was changed in 3.14 where you couldn’t set titles on your tabs. I had a hard time finding a good way so I found a method that worked and made a bash function. Add this to your .bashrc


This method allows you to have spaces in your title too!

set-title my-title

set-title my really long title with spaces

I hope I made someones day with this one.
