Ubuntu: Simply set xterm title?



Question:

it sounds like a stupid question, but I hope it isnt.

I want to create a simple xterm with a fixed title. I tried:

xterm -title whatever (that is what xterm --help suggests)

xterm -T whatever (according to man pages, this is the same as --title)

but well, my xterm always comes up showing username@hostname:~ in the title. I guess that this title comes from some environment variable; but I would prefer if I do not have to make a permanent change to my .bashrc or .profile just to be able to create one xterm with a fixed title?!

This is xubuntu 14.04


Solution:1

Use

xterm -xrm 'XTerm.vt100.allowTitleOps: false' -T whatever
