I use XFCE for one feature that is very important to me. When I insert a Audio CD in one of my optical drives it can automatically start abcde to rip it. I have three optical drives (/dev/sr0, /dev/sr1, /dev/sr2). At the moment I start ripping with the removable media settings settings. I use this command:

/usr/bin/xfce4-terminal -T %d --geometry 72x24 -e "/usr/bin/abcde -N -d %d"

XFCE replaces %d with the device. I would like to have one terminal window with three tabs, each tab for one drive. Maybe the first step would be to open xfce4-terminal at login with three tabs. But how would I start abcde in a specific tab?
