Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6271
default directory in gnome/enligtenment terminals
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
Running Enlightenment/Gnome when I call up a terminal
by doing a right-click on the background, new, terminal
it comes up in the directory .gnome-desktop
Since there is nothing of interest or importance here,
this is very annoying. I have not been able to track
down where this gets set.
I did devise a kludgey workaround by appending the cd
command to the end of /etc/bashrc, so that when
a new terminal is spawned, it comes up in my home directory,
where I would expect it to.
Onc could argue that it should come up in the directory
from which I ran startx, but I haven't figured that
one out yet.
The gnome-terminal that ships with 6.1 does not show this behaviour. When right
clicking the root window and choosing NEW->Terminal, it comes up properly in the
current user's home directory.
