hi,

is there a command to center the terminal window on the screen? On arch 
linux / xfce, with zsh.

This tip offers an escape sequence for positioning the window on 
upper-left, but changing the values has no effect.
printf '\e[3;0;0t'

Thx!

Try

Settings -> Window Manager Tweaks -> Placement -> By default, place 
windows "At the center of the screen".

Does that do what you want?

Fairly sure that's dependent on the terminal emulator you're using, not
the shell you use in it.

In your case, you would need to look up the possibility to do this with
xfce4-terminal or install xterm and use that instead.

Positioning windows is the job of the window manager, not the shell or
terminal emulator.

You should be able to do it using wmctrl if your window manager implements
the EWMH API, which Xfce does: https://linux.die.net/man/1/wmctrl
See this answer for examples: https://askubuntu.com/a/104190/898
