Check the "remotinator" command described in the manual under Advanced Usage.
This got a little expansion and cleaning up after the 0.98 release. Either way, you will need to read up, but the basic idea is something like the following:
    remotinator --uuid urn:uuid:c9bf1da5-ccbd-4e16-ba16-7289552bfdbf hsplit

This assumes you have a terminator window open, have detected the UUID for one of the terminals, decided which one you want to split, and have remotinator on the path. Right now we are not creating the necessary link for the installed remotinator to be on the path - temporary workaround:
    sudo ln -s /usr/share/terminator/remotinator /usr/bin/remotinator

Hope that helps.

Oh, I should also mention that this remotinator command does nothing more than call the DBus function. (Again see the manual). You also have the option of using the DBus interface directly from another program or script.

Can you help with this problem?
