no window borders on gnome-terminal in Fedora


Hi,
I just installed Fedora 23, and the settings for gnome-terminal does not include borders on the window, so if I have multiple terminals open, I don't know the boundaries of each one. How do I set a border on gnome-terminal window?

TIA
Nulik

try right clicking on the window and see if that will pop up a menu then go to property settings... if it has that option build in.

and check theses out

Your desktop too may have a program for settings in there somewhere to fix that too.

Hmmm, if it would be that easy I would already done it. I am writing my own TCP/IP stack in C, and certainly know how to check for checkboxes in preferences windows. The bad thing is, gnome-terminal doesn't have it. No mention border's anywere. Also, it is the only window that has no borders. Other apps have shadowed borders. But in gnome-terminal I have black background, thats the problem. Seems like it is time to go back to the old fvwm ...
