Ubuntu: Annoying terminal warning

annoying Although I’m quite happy with Ubuntu 9.04, I find a couple of new features quite annoying. The warning message it pops up whenever you try to close a console with a running program in it falls in this category. Fortunately it’s not difficult to disable:

1. Open up gconf-editor
2. goto /apps/gnome-terminal/global/
3. Untick confirm_window_close

All set. As a bonus side effect now closing a terminal with multiple tabs won’t pop up a message either.
