MAC split same working directory don't run

Asked by colombiman on 2014-02-18

Hi,

My installation :
mac port
fink
xcode
x11
mac os x lion moutain

I install terminator with fink.

When i execute terminator in my terminal.app, it's run x11 and def xterm in terminal default for terminator.
When i go to a random directory and press cltr+shift+e, terminator create a new terminal but in my home directory, no the working directory.
I search solution for behavior of xterm, but find nothing to "open tab/split in same working directory".

how can i change the default terminal for x11 or for terminator ?

Best regards.

re,

I see that in
terminatorlib/terminal.py
line 167-168
os.putenv('TERM', self.config['term'])
os.putenv('COLORTERM', self.config['colorterm'])

refered to
'emulation' : 'xterm',
 'term' : 'xterm',
in terminatorlib/config.py

so you can change the shell or xterm is mandatory ?

I see this feaatures in the last version 0.97.

Hi, reading this, it seems to be more of a bug than a question. To create a bug use the "Create bug report" link that should be below this text.

Please see http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html for good advice on providing effective bug reports.
Also see http://gnometerminator.blogspot.de/p/introduction.html for additional instructions specific to Terminator in the Bugs/Problems/Help section.

Additionally, I do not have access to a Mac, so I will not be able to reproduce this myself, so following the above links is extra important here. Under a linux system inheriting the working dir of the current term works, so this is possible specific to your environment/OS/etc.
