Enable Unlimited Scrolling in the Terminal - Ubuntu


Usually while i am testing my server logs the output from a command can be so so lengthy and hard to able scroll back to the beginning. Therefore, I always set the terminal of the each machine that i work to display as many lines as unlimited scrolling.

In the terminal, go to Edit > Profile Preferences, and in the Scrolling tab you will see there is a default amount of lines to be displayed (probably something like 512). Under that, you will see “Unlimited“, so check that, and from the next command on-wards you won’t have that limitation any more.
