Question How to set title on Gnome-Terminal 3.14.2-1.fc21?


Ever since upgrading to Fedora 21 seems things have gone missing on me.

I know how to set the title via command prompt but doesn't help me much while the window has something running. Used to be I could right click on the tab and select set title.

Where'd it go? Is there still a hot key for it?

To dynamically update the title, change your bash prompt to
Code:
PS1="\[\e]2;\u@\H \w\a\u@\h:\W\$\e[0m\] "

Actually knew about that one but doesn't help much if the command prompt is busy. Used to be you could just right click and set title. So I could file tabs of long running programs.
