Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1476407
"xfce4-terminal --tab" does nothing if a window is already open
Last modified: 2017-08-09 15:58:18 EDT
Description of problem:
Since upgrading from Fedora24 to 25 (now running xfce4-terminal-0.8.5.1-1.fc25.x86_64), the --tab option no longer works if I already have a pre-existing xfce4-terminal window open.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% of the time
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run 'xfce4-terminal --tab'
A new tab is created in the pre-existing xfce4-terminal window, or a new window is opened
[netllama@netllama ~]$ xfce4-terminal --tab
[netllama@netllama ~]$ echo $?
This is fixed in 0.8.6 I am pretty sure.
I didn't build that version for f25, but I can/should... look for an update to test out in a few.
