Disable menu bar in gnome-terminal

You can easily hide menu bar for gnome-terminal at a runtime. Obviously it’s rarely used and you can save some screen space by hiding it.

To hide it for newly opened terminal windows by default change this flag in gnome config:
/apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/default_show_menubar to false.

gconftool --type boolean --set /apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/default_show_menubar false
