How to disable dynamic-auto tab name (rename) changes for guake


How to Disable GUAKE Dynamic Auto Tab Name (rename) changes

Very frustrating feature of Gauke - it will change the name of tab on each process and change of directory.
Which generally running out of display from monitor and need to guess which terminal is for what.

It can be controlled by enabling static tab name by altering settings for Gauke from GNOME Configuration Tool.

Ideally this should be supported under guake terminal preferences but somehow its not been there.

This issue can be addressed by simple configuration changes.
Execute the below command on terminal:

` gconftool-2 --set /apps/guake/general/use_vte_titles --type boolean false `
