To change font in the Terminal you need dconf-editor. Install it, if you haven't done so:
sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
Run it and go to path org > gnome > desktop > interface > monospace-font-name.
Enter name of desired font and font size. For example Anonymous Pro 11.
You can also use the command in Terminal instead of the dconf-editor.
To change the font of just the terminal (pantheon-terminal), you can use the dconf-editor (requires an install) or the gsettings command. Edit the font property in the org.pantheon.terminal.settings schema. For example:
$ gsettings set org.pantheon.terminal.settings font 'FreeMono 10'
You will have to close and reopen the terminal for the changes to take ...
You can find the "upstream release" codename using the -u flag with lsb_release commands. Try it with the following command in Terminal:
lsb_release -a -u
On Freya, it gives me the following output:
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Without the -u flag, you'll get ...
In order to turn off transparency, open a terminal session and run the following commands, depending on your version of elementary OS:
Turn off transparency in WingPanel
gsettings set org.pantheon.desktop.wingpanel use-transparency false
Turn off transparency in Terminal
gsettings set org.pantheon.terminal.settings background "rgba(37, 46, 50, ...
You can set the default terminal by changing the alternative for x-terminal-emulator. Installing gnome-terminal creates an alternative symlink so all you have to do is set it.
sudo update-alternatives --set x-terminal-emulator /usr/bin/gnome-terminal.wrapper
Edit: It seems like the shortcut implementation is not using the alternative, but rather a ...

The ability to paste clipboard contents into the terminal using the standard Ctrl + V shortcut is called "natural-copy-paste" and you can disable it in the dconf settings.
If you haven't already done so, install dconf editor using this command:
sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
Open dconf editor and navigate to org > pantheon > terminal > settings.
This is the expected behavior. If you want to open a new tab with the same location as the current tab, you can open a duplicate tab by right clicking on a tab and selecting "Duplicate".
If you'd like to permanently change the behavior so that new tabs always open with the directory of the currently focused tab, you'll need to use either dconf Editor or the ...
Although disabled by default, you can assign a keyboard shortcut to enable any window to stay on top in Gala. Simply assign your desired key combination to the Toggle always on Top option located under System Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> Windows.
It's pretty easy, first add the fish shell repository:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:fish-shell/release-3
Then just updated your repos:
sudo apt-get update
Now we can install it:
sudo apt-get install fish
One more command and we are done:
chsh -s /usr/bin/fish
This last command will switch your default shell to fish. To see the changes close your terminal ...
To change the transparency in Terminal you can use gsettings like this:
gsettings set org.pantheon.terminal.settings opacity 90
If you are not happy with the result, you can always change it to a different value or reset it to the default like this:
gsettings reset org.pantheon.terminal.settings opacity
To change the cursor shape, you can execute the ...
If you prefer to do things in the terminal, simply run:
gsettings set io.elementary.terminal.settings natural-copy-paste false
Before Elementary OS 5.0, it was:
gsettings set org.pantheon.terminal.settings natural-copy-paste false
elementaryOS natively supports two different packaging formats, deb packages and Flatpaks.
The system's deb packages are managed via the Aptitude package manager while Flatpaks are maintained separately with Flatpak's own command-line program.
Aptitude has multiple command-line interfaces available.
The new apt tool has been in Ubuntu since 14.04. ...
Ahh. I found the palette key located in dconf tools, in
Clicking Set to Default has made the colours much nicer. You can also run this command:
gsettings reset org.pantheon.terminal.settings palette
I'm not sure why this was necessary as I've never changed any of these settings before. Either way it works great now.

I know this is an old thread, but the approved answer is now incorrect and this is still the top Google link for this question, so in new versions of Elementary OS, the terminal is called io.elementary.terminal
The simplest way I can think of is to write the location that you want to bookmark to the bookmarks file, for example:
echo "file:///home/user/location Place" >> ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks
Of course, replacing the location string /home/user/location with your desired location and Place with whatever you want to call the bookmark.
pantheon-terminal actually has an undocumented command line option -w with which you can specify a working directory for the new terminal.
This option also handily checks for already existing pantheon-terminal windows and opens a new tab if there is one, or a new window if there isn't.
I've written a tiny script that simply uses that option and then ...
Setting the shell key to bash --login doesn't work, however I managed to fix that with the following workaround:
create a file named bashlogin in /bin directory with the following content
exec bash --login
mark it as executable
sudo chmod +x /bin/bashlogin
and finally set the terminal shell key
gsettings set io.elementary.terminal.settings ...
If you want to change the font color, you can use Configurator. Once you've installed the application, you go to org.pantheon.terminal.settings and change the value of foreground to any color you want. The default color in my system is #94a3a5
If you don't want to use Configurator(or dconf-editor) you an use terminal and paste this
gsettings set org....
