how to specify a config file for xfce4-terminal

i want to run different terminals with different config files.  the man pages says it locates it in the directory in XDG_CONFIG_HOME.  does this need other things be put there, too?  that is, if xfce4-terminal looks for any other xfce4 info, does it look for it in here?  i am wanting to start some terminals with smaller fonts and some terminals with larger fonts.

Re: how to specify a config file for xfce4-terminal

Launch xfce4-terminal with the "--disable-server" parameter so that it doesn't connect to any existing instance while temporarily setting a different XDG_CONFIG_HOME:

XDG_CONFIG_HOME=~/.config2 xfce4-terminal --disable-server

This will create a new ~/.config2/xfce4/terminal folder that will contain the instance preferences.
