How to Add 👉   👈 Padding to the Ubuntu Gnome Terminal#

I often make screen captures of terminal outputs while documenting my work or helping colleagues and was always bothered when its contents were too close to the left border.

Adding padding to the gnome terminal on Ubuntu, and likely any distribution using Gnome, is trivial, as it suffices to edit ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css.

Seeing as I’ve been wanting to document this for awhile already; going against my “principle of addressing issues as soon as they become an annoyance” once again, I figured I’d just put this note out there.
