Ubuntu – How to set the terminal to open maximized


I want to tell compiz, metacity, the gnome-terminal or whoever is in charge to open the terminal window maximized by default.

How can I do that?

EDIT for the future: most of the answers were upvoted in older ubuntu versions, since 17.10 and on the most upvoted solutions do not work.

Launch gnome-terminal as such:

gnome-terminal --window --maximize
