shift-control-N to open new window propogates cwd
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:23 EST
If I hit shift-control-N to create a new gnome-terminal window, the resulting
shell has the same current working directory as the window I hit shift-control-N
in. I'm not aware of any other terminal emulator that does this, but I haven't
looked very hard either. It certainly doesn't happen on my Mac's Terminal
This behavior seems profoundly wrong to me, but that's just a personal
preference. What would be nice would be a mechanism to allow the newly-minted
terminal window to have the cwd set to $HOME. I can see two ways of doing this:
either a profile option (probably under "Title and Command") or a different key
binding to handle the new behavior.
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Sorry - I'm using a mac these days, so I've no way of verifying. I will close
