I am quite new to Ubuntu. (I started to use Ubuntu about a year ago, but I don't know how to use things like terminal well. All I used by console was easy things like ls or cd, to use gcc.)

Today, I found 'profile' property of the terminal, and I created a new profile. Then, I changed some properties like font color and opacity.

Soon, I found something like 'command', and for test, I set that to ls. I closed and re-opened the terminal. However, the terminal terminates right after it appeared. I soon remembered that there was option like 'close right after the command is executed'.

Therefore, I can't use Gnome Terminal D: ... I found Konsole at Ubuntu software center, but that's just not my style (especially cursor, its position is little weird...).

Question : How to change the profile of Gnome Terminal, without opening it?

Sounds like you've botched your profile up slightly by adding a custom command (something that runs as soon as it opens).

Thankfully you can edit your profile settings by running this (use Alt+F2):

gconf-editor /apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default

If you've botched up too much you can use the Etch-a-Sketch method and reset everything back to defaults:

gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/gnome-terminal/
