KeyTypeDefaultDescription
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/global/profile_listlist[Default] List of profiles known to gnome-terminal. The list contains strings naming subdirectories relative to /apps/gnome-terminal/profiles.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/global/default_profilestringDefault Profile to be used when opening a new window or tab. Must be in profile_list.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/global/use_mnemonicsbooltrue Whether to have Alt+letter access keys for the menubar. They may interfere with some applications run inside the terminal so it's possible to turn them off.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/global/use_menu_acceleratorsbooltrue Normally you can access the menubar with F10. This can also be customized via gtkrc (gtk-menu-bar-accel = "whatever"). This option allows the standard menubar accelerator to be disabled.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/global/active_encodingslist  A subset of possible encodings are presented in the Encoding submenu. This is a list of encodings to appear there. The special encoding name "current" means to display the encoding of the current locale.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/global/confirm_window_closebooltrue Whether to ask for confirmation when closing a terminal window which has more than one open tab.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/visible_namestring  Human-readable name of the profile.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/cursor_blinkbooltrue True if the cursor should blink when the terminal has focus, for windows/tabs with this profile.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/default_show_menubarbooltrue True if the menubar should be shown in new windows, for windows/tabs with this profile.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/foreground_colorstring#000000 Default color of text in the terminal, as a color specification (can be HTML-style hex digits, or a color name such as "red").
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/background_colorstring#FFFFDD Default color of terminal background, as a color specification (can be HTML-style hex digits, or a color name such as "red").
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/title_modestringreplace If the application in the terminal sets the title (most typically people have their shell set up to do this), the dynamically-set title can erase the configured title, go before it, go after it, or replace it. The possible values are "replace", "before", "after", and "ignore".
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/titlestring  Title to display for the terminal window or tab. This title may be replaced by or combined with the title set by the application inside the terminal, depending on the title_mode setting.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/allow_boldbooltrue If true, allow applications in the terminal to make text boldface.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/silent_bellboolfalse If true, don't make a noise when applications send the escape sequence for the terminal bell.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/word_charsstring-A-Za-z0-9,./?%&#:_ When selecting text by word, sequences of these characters are considered single words. Ranges can be given as "A-Z". Literal hyphen (not expressing a range) should be the first character given.

/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/scrollback_linesint500 Number of scrollback lines to keep around. You can scroll back in the terminal by this number of lines; lines that don't fit in the scrollback are discarded. Be careful with this setting; it's the primary factor in determining how much memory the terminal will use.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/scroll_on_keystrokebooltrue If true, pressing a key jumps the scrollbar to the bottom.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/scroll_on_outputboolfalse If true, whenever there's new output the terminal will scroll to the bottom.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/exit_actionstringclose Possible values are "close" to close the terminal, and "restart" to restart the command.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/login_shellboolfalse If true, the command inside the terminal will be launched as a login shell. (argv[0] will have a hyphen in front of it.)
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/update_recordsbooltrue If true, the system login records utmp and wtmp will be updated when the command inside the terminal is launched.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/use_custom_commandboolfalse If true, the value of the custom_command setting will be used in place of running a shell.

This is that palette, in the form of a colon-separated list of color names. Color names should be in hex format e.g. "#FF00FF"
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/x_fontstring-misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--*-120-*-*-c-*-*-* An X font name. See the X man page (type "man X") for more details on the format of X font names.

/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/background_darknessfloat0.5 A value between 0.0 and 1.0 indicating how much to darken the background image. 0.0 means no darkness, 1.0 means fully dark. In the current implementation, there are only two levels of darkness possible, so the setting behaves as a boolean, where 0.0 disables the darkening effect.
/schemas/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/backspace_bindingstringascii-del Sets what code the backspace key generates. Possible values are "ascii-del" for the ASCII DEL character, "control-h" for Control-H (AKA the ASCII BS character), "escape-sequence" for the escape sequence typically bound to backspace or delete. "ascii-del" is normally considered the correct setting for the Backspace key.

Possible values are "ascii-del" for the ASCII DEL character, "control-h" for Control-H (AKA the ASCII BS character), "escape-sequence" for the escape sequence typically bound to backspace or delete.
