Terminal Settings – Where Are Shell/Terminal Settings Stored?

command linegnome-terminalsettings

I updated my Ubuntu but it crashed during installation and I was not able to recover it (my hard drive crashed). I changed my hard drive and re-install ubuntu

I saved all my important docs (bookmark, documents etc…)

One thing I was unable to recover is the profile from my shell (I changed the color scheme, title, number of lines scrollback etc…)

Where can I save this so next time something happens I won't have to set my terminal settings all over again?

GNOME Terminal profiles are stored in: ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles.

(You might want to back up the whole .gconf directory, though.)
