MAC split same working directory don't run

Asked by colombiman on 2014-02-18


My installation :
mac port
mac os x lion moutain

I install terminator with fink.

When i execute terminator in my, 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.

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

refered to
'emulation' : 'xterm',
 'term' : 'xterm',
in terminatorlib/

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 for good advice on providing effective bug reports.
Also see 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.
