Make Terminal Easier to Use

Upon completing the install of Ubuntu, terminal is setup with a default of 24 columns. As MOST paths and commands we typically work with in a Linux based Xilinx environment are rather long it can make sense to increase the columns from 80 to 120 (or more!).

This not only allows you to actually see text easier, but it makes things more clear to understand.  With the new Vitis scripting, Avnet has added many new messages and colors to logs and terminal reporting.  This HOPEFULLY will increase your efficiency as you do not have to spend as much time dealing with understanding as doing!


Open a terminal, then Edit -> Preferences










Adjust the columns from 80 to 120
