So, I'm completely new to Linux, and I have to learn the basic, but I can't make custom commands work in hot corners! Thanks for your help.

  • Thanks for the answers, I went out of town so I'll do it when I return :) Nov 11 '16 at 4:34
  • Both answers helped me, but I had to install it as @Davin Miler said. Thanks a lot. Nov 14 '16 at 0:42

try setting the custom command to gnome-terminal, your might have to install it first though. In case of the last use sudo apt install gnome-terminal


You can set in Settings/Desktop under the Hot Corners tab (I put pantheon-terminal but you can choose gnome-terminal as well if you have installed it):
