gconf profiles broken?

Asked by Donat on 2009-02-08

Hello,
When I try to invoke gnome-terminal profiles as described in the man page I get an error message:

donat@donat-one:~$ terminator --profile=transparent
Usage: terminator [options]
terminator: error: --profile option does not take a value

this goes against what is said in the man page, so I am wondering if the fundtion is not yet properly implemented?

I run Crunchbang version 8.10 with terminator 0.11

This should be fixed in 0.12. I have linked the relevant bug report to this question.

Thanks for the swift reply, and having installed 0.12, the problem seems to be fixed.

However I think the Man page needs to be updated as the correct syntax appears to be:
-p PROFILENAME
or
--profile PROFILENAME
as opposed to
--profile=PROFILENAME
which still returns the error message from above.
