Gnome Terminal – How to Set Ctrl+Alt+T to Open a Maximized Terminal


I use the Ctrl+Alt+T shortcut to open a terminal, but I cannot see how I can get it maximized. When I start it manually, I can simply do a gnome-terminal --maximize, but that does not apply for the shortcut. Even a changing of the .desktop files did not change anything.

Any way to let the shortcut open a maximized terminal window?

I use regular Gnome 2 on Ubuntu 11.04 with no compositing effects.
