I noticed that the alias won't work until I have the terminal loaded. So I guess the aliases don't get loaded into memory until a terminal is running. What I wanted to do was use alt-F2 and type in terminal, instead of having to type in gnome-terminal. However, this won't work because the aliases aren't loaded into memory at this point. So, should I just make a file named terminal and link it to gnome-terminal? How would I do that?
