Too easy to close the current shell

Asked by Pawel Veselov on 2016-12-14

I like Terminator. I really do.
However, I've used gnome-terminal before.
My serious problem with Terminator now is that:
a) The location of the "Close" in Terminator's pop-up menu is nearly the same as "Copy" in gnome-terminal
b) There is no way to disable closing terminals
c) There is no way to request that a confirmation is requested before closing

If it were possible to configure either (b) or (c), it would be really great.

Thank you,

a) You think so? For me GT has Copy as second entry, in T the Copy is the first entry and Close is the sixth. I wouldn't say the location is nearly the same.
b/c) We do prompt if you try to close a window. But for either of the options you're talking about, that is a Wishlist item. (Raise a bug marking it as a feature request and I'll turn it into a wishlist item. Note that this is no guarantee that it will get attention from me any time soon - lots of requests, too few contributors.)

a) I know so :) My GT has, in order: "Open Terminal", "Open Tab" <SEP> "Close Tab" <SEP> "Copy", "Paste" <SEP> "Profiles", "Show Menu Bar". OK, may be because it's mate-terminal?

b) How do I turn on that prompt? If I select "close" from the context menu, the tab, on me, closes immediately without any confirmation or warning.

a) Yup. Probably down to Mate differences. You should add a wishlist item to get a prompt (optional) when closing a terminal.

b) That prompt is only popped up when you close the *window* and it contains more than 1 terminal. It can be disabled by checking a box, and dismissing it. This is a one shot setting though, and cannot be reactivated through the interface. You have to remove a line in the .config/terminator/terminator file. The line:
suppress_multiple_term_dialog = True
needs to be deleted.

Can you help with this problem?
