[Bug 1451944] Re: Gnome-terminal in Ubuntu Unity shrinks to minimum size


I can also confirm this is happening with the Paper theme linked above,
and is "fixed" if I switch to the default Ambience theme.

Ubuntu 15.10
HP G72 
Intel i5 460m with integrated graphics

  Gnome-terminal in Ubuntu Unity shrinks to minimum size

Bug description:
  When I open a terminal in Ubuntu 15.04, it shrinks to 1 character by 1
  character. I can use the corner resizer to make the window bigger, but
  it immediately shrinks to 1x1. There are a few x,y combinations that
  allow the window to stay at the desired size, but if you're off by a
  pixel, the window shrinks to 1x1.

  There is another question (http://askubuntu.com/questions/423733
  /gnome-terminal-in-kubuntu-shrinks-to-minimum-size), Gnome-terminal in
  Kubuntu shrinks to minimum size, that is basically the same thing, but
  in KDE. I tried to follow the instructions:

      In KDE, go to System Settings. Return to the overview if you are
  not already there. In the Workspace Appearance and Behavior section,
  click Window Behavior. In the area to the left, click the Window Rules

  but, there is no Workspace Appearance and Behavior section. I couldn't
  find a similar setting in ccsm, gnome-tweak-tool or unity-tweak-tool.
