Description Jiri Prajzner 2016-01-22 09:24:44 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1299467 +++

Description of problem:
gnome-terminal ignores the -e, --command option argument, thus it's impossible to execute a command in new window or a tab.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. execute gnome-terminal -e pwd

Actual results:
no output from the pwd is printed out

Expected results:
output from pwd is printed out

Additional info:
This option prevents other options like --window or --zoom from working, that's why the severity is set to high
Comment 2 Jiri Prajzner 2018-07-11 07:30:49 EDT
gnome-terminal -e pwd
# Option “-e” is deprecated and might be removed in a later version of gnome-terminal.
# Use “-- ” to terminate the options and put the command line to execute after it.
gnome-terminal -- pwd 
still doesn't execute the command in new terminal window
