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): gnome-terminal-2.24.0-2.fc10.x86_64 How reproducible: Always 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.

Comment 4 Jeremy Fitzhardinge 2008-10-06 19:01:02 EDT
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 can get it here: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=882960
Comment 8 Jeremy Fitzhardinge 2008-10-15 18:24:06 EDT
Thanks, that works. An unfortunate side-effect was that it lost all my keyboard shortcuts, but it wasn't hard to re-add them.
