I use a shell script with PROMTP_COMMAND (bash) to set the title of my
xterm to the cwd. To do this, I use something like:
echo -n "^2; YOUR TITLE GOES HERE ^G"
I also set the icon title with:
echo -n "^1; YOUR ICON TITLE GOES HERE ^G"
^[ is one(!) Escape character, and ^G is one (!) CTRL-G. Use an editor
that can insert these kind of characters correctly. Dont't forget the
This works fine for me with xterm, gnome-terminal, and
"It doesn't matter what temperature a room is;
it is always room temperature."
