Comunicating with main terminator (an app tri a term create)

Asked by Phi on 2018-01-26

Hi All,

I'd like to know if an prog launched from one terminator terminal, so havin a TERMINATOR_UUID, could talk to the outter terminator and request commands?

I'd like my prog to open other terminal and get the used pty in return.

Thanx in advance.
Cheers,
Phi

Hmmm. Maybe I misunderstand. Aren't you describing remotinator? <http://terminator-gtk3.readthedocs.io/en/latest/advancedusage.html#remotinator>

All remotinator does is make DBus calls to the Terminator DBus interface. You could write your own DBus calls by following how remotinator works. I can't think how you'd find the pty off the top of my head.

Can you help with this problem?
