Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1254805
mate-terminal --title=foo does not set title to foo
Last modified: 2015-08-31 23:36:17 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a script that launches a bunch of terminals to help get me
up and productive after a reboot.
But, with mate-terminal on Fedora 22, the --title option does not work:
(New terminal, but title is set to defaults).
Please make this work again!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
MATE Terminal 1.10.1
Steps to Reproduce:
Title is user@host:dir
Title is 'foo'
There are several similar bugs for gnome-terminal.
can you please open a report at upstream?
in edit -> profile preference -> second tab there is a drop-down-menu under title, change here to 'keep intial title'.
Than the default title is 'Terminal' or whatever you choose in your profile and you can change it with the -t option.
I'm thinking about to change this default behaviour for f23 with a gsettings override, but i can't do that in a release cycle, because it change the look and feel of mate-terminal.
mate-desktop-1.10.2-1.fc23 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 23. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2015-14264
Note, i did a gsettings override for f23 in result the steps from comment2 aren't need anymore. But i can't do that in a release cycle of a package.
