  • First, I tried searching for the place where the information about my xterms was written... I tried changing that a little, with -geometry and such, but that didn't work out the way I intended...

    Then, I decided to go for a different approach... my .bash_profile now reads:

    # four xterms to start with
    xterm -bg black -fg white -vb +sk -geometry +0+0 -e " upcoming ; bash "
    xterm -bg black -fg white -vb +sk -geometry +507+0
    xterm -bg black -fg white -vb +sk -geometry +0+340
    xterm -bg black -fg white -vb +sk -geometry +507+340

    Notice the trick with the -e switch ;-) Since the xterm would automatically exit after the completion of the command, the command now includes a new bash :-) Nice, uh? :-)

    Thanks to slanning and to melopt for the ideas :-)

    PS: Now I just have to find a way to run those commands *only* when in graphical mode! Shouldn't be too hard... :-)
