NAME
       gnome-terminal -	A terminal emulator for	GNOME

SYNOPSIS
       gnome-terminal [OPTION...] [-- PROGRAM [ARG...]]

DESCRIPTION
       gnome-terminal is a terminal emulator application for accessing a UNIX
       shell environment which can be used to run programs available on	your
       system. It supports several profiles, multiple tabs and implements
       several keyboard	shortcuts.

OPTIONS
       --help, -h
	   Show	a brief	overview of all	the options.

       --help-all
	   Show	all the	options	in detail.

       --help-gtk
	   Show	all the	GTK options.

       --help-terminal
	   Show	all the	options	to select between new terminal tabs or
	   windows.

       --help-terminal-options
	   Show	all the	options	to change the attributes of terminals
	   regardless of whether they are in separate tabs or windows.

       --help-window-options
	   Show	all the	options	to change the attributes of windows containing
	   terminals.

       --load-config=FILE
	   Restore the application to a	previously saved state by loading it
	   from	a configuration	file.

       --preferences
	   Show	the preferences	window.

       --print-environment, -p
	   Print the environment variables to interact with newly created
	   terminals.

       --quiet,	-q
	   Suppress diagnostics.

       --verbose, -v
	   Increase diagnostic verbosity.

       --tab
	   Open	a new tab containing a terminal	in the last-opened window with
	   the default profile.

       --window
	   Open	a new window with a tab	containing a terminal with the default
	   profile.

       --command, -e=COMMAND
	   Split the argument to this option into a program and	arguments in
	   the same way	a shell	would, and execute the resulting command-line
	   inside the terminal.

	   This	option is deprecated. Instead, use -- to terminate the
	   options, and	put the	program	and arguments to execute after it: for
	   example, instead of gnome-terminal -e "python3 -q", prefer to use
	   gnome-terminal -- python3 -q.

	   Note	that the COMMAND is not	run via	a shell: it is split into
	   words and executed as a program. If shell syntax is required, use
	   the form gnome-terminal -- sh -c '...'.

       --execute PROGRAM [ARGS], -x PROGRAM [ARGS]
	   Stop	parsing	options	at this	point, and interpret all subsequent
	   options as a	program	and arguments to execute inside	the terminal.

	   This	option is deprecated: use -- instead. For example, instead of
	   gnome-terminal -x python3 -q, prefer	to use gnome-terminal --
	   python3 -q.

       --fd=FD
	   Forward file	descriptor.

       --profile=PROFILE-NAME
