I've seen that it's easy to have the terminal set up so it opens up my tabs as I wan't to have them, but is it possible to have a different profile attached to each of those tabs? I was happily creating a new profile for one tab when I noticed all the other tabs were inheriting the options :(.
I'm using Fedora 16 with gnome desktop.
UPDATE: I see that terminator would probably fullfill my needs in this respect. Would the right thing to do, be to delete this question (as I prematurely asked without considering this option)?
