Description Jeremy Fitzhardinge 2008-10-01 17:25:50 EDT
Description of problem:
In F9's gnome-terminal, selecting "new tab" would create a new tab with the same profile as the current tab.  In rawhide's gnome-terminal, the new tab always has the default profile.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create new profile
2.Start terminal with that profile
3.Type Ctrl-Shift-T to create new tab
Actual results:
New default profile tab

Expected results:
New tab with current profile.

If you open the Profiles dialog, there is now a preference for
"Profile used when launching a new terminal".

Is that good enough for you ? 
Otherwise, you'd have to file an upstream feature request to add a  "current profile" entry to that preference.
Comment 2 Jeremy Fitzhardinge 2008-10-02 11:23:19 EDT
No, it isn't sufficient.  The current profile represents the context of what I'm working on at the moment, and if I want a new tab or window, I want it to be in the same context.  But it isn't any specific profile I want.

This seems like a rather pointless and irritating change in behaviour.  I couldn't see any likely config option, even in gconf.

Gnome claims bug is fixed in current gnome-terminal.  The rawhide package needs updating.
Comment 5 Jeremy Fitzhardinge 2008-10-15 16:51:54 EDT
Reopening because this isn't fixed in Fedora.  Any chance Fedora can pull in the upstream fix?  This is a major usability issue for me.
Comment 6 Matthias Clasen 2008-10-15 17:14:20 EDT
We'll get the fix with gnome-terminal 2.24.1
Comment 7 Will Woods 2008-10-15 17:50:03 EDT
In the meantime I did a scratch build with the patch from gnome bug 554485. You

Thanks, that works.  An unfortunate side-effect was that it lost all my keyboard shortcuts, but it wasn't hard to re-add them.
