"auto cd" to directory of currently opened terminal when splitting window

Asked by Siergiej Riaguzow on 2014-04-25


First of all thanks for the emulator. Ion and stuff are two hardcore for me and Terminator fits great.

I have a small questions: when splitting terminator window (no matter horizontally or vertically) is it possible to configure an option somewhere so that the new window which is created by split has automatically opened directory of the window which was focused when split command was issued?

Same for the tabs - is it possible to open new tab in working directory of the previous tab?

Hi, this should be how it works. i.e. open new window. cd to new folder. do split/new tab. The new terminal should be in the new folder too.

This breaks down if you are ssh'ing to another machine in the first new window.

If you are in a local bash and this does not work, you should raise as a bug and provide more info.

Can you help with this problem?
