I have had that extension installed though, and it does help at least
though for distinguishing between the grey and white rectangles
(firefox, thunderbird, irc, gnote, gedit, etc.).
But yeah, the answer for terminals is not so simple.
For many years, I've have this set this in my tsch .login (and make
sure the terminal is set to process the .login file):
if ($TERM == "xterm" || $TERM == "xterm-color" || $TERM ==
echo "\033]2;($tty) $USER@$SHORTHOST\007"
alias precmd 'echo -n "\033]2;($tty) $USER@$SHORTHOST ($cwd)\007"'
This causes the terminal title bar to change like this:
(pts/1) cra@host (/home/cra)
which I then use to identify which terminal to click on in Overview
mode. It works very nicely.
