Dear All,You don't need gconf-editor or any other special functions.
Normally, I could go "Applications -> System Tools -> Terminal" and
the app "gnome-terminal" would start and po up a new terminal window
with a command prompt.
The default terminal size is not optimal for me and i would like to
adjust it a bit. With previous version (GNOME2), I could just do a
right-click on the icon and edit "terminal command" to something
"gnome-terminal -geometry 100x35"
But now in GNOME3, I can't find out how to do it any more?
When we browse the program/app menu, we see their icons. When we
click an icon, the corresponding app will run (with default command
set by GNOME). How can we modify the command or its arguments from
the default (as in the example above for gnome-terminal)?
Any help please?
Open Terminal. Right click in the terminal screen and choose
Profiles, Preferences. Then you can switch a number of options such
as the default size, font, etc., and you can either use these as the
default profile, or you can make additional profiles for different
kinds of terminals.
Thanks a lot for your solution,
I actually would like to create a new icon on the GNOME3 desktop or
the "Favorites" bar so that a click on the icon will run a command
(for example, "sudo gns3").
How could I do that wit GNOME3?
Thanks in advance for any help.

But to answer your question, you can make an application icon for
yourself through a *.desktop file in ~/.local/share/applications/ --
this is an example of the content:
For icons, it's safe to choose anything under
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/ for instance. Once you create the
file, assuming you've typed correctly you'll see the new application
in your Applications list, and you can right-click it and then choose
Add to Favorites. (This is how you add any existing app to the
favorites bar -- you can also add running apps this way, I believe.)
