Description of problem:
gnome-terminal -e command
gnome-terminal -x command
should run the command in a new terminal. Worked great in RH 7.1.
Doesn't work in RH 7.2
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.gnome-terminal -e mutt
Actual Results: gnome-terminal with shell prompt
Expected Results: gnome-terminal with mutt running
applies to -e and -x options. Also does not depend
on the program selected - pine, ls, csh...
I could not reproduce this problem.
False alarm :).
.gnome/gnome-terminal contained a [factory] section, which is nolonger
supported - also a [dummy]section. It also contained the new entries for
factory stuff. With that in there it neith complains nor works...
so not it's out and it works.
