Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 638423
Guake has wrong terminal type set (environment variable TERM=dumb)
Last modified: 2010-10-13 14:58:39 EDT
Description of problem:
Shells run in Guake have their terminal type set to dumb (environment variable TERM=dumb). Running xterm or gnome-terminal has the correct TERM environment variable set).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set guake as a startup application in GNOME
2. open a new shell in Guake
3. echo $TERM
I have Guake set to automatically start in GNOME. If I kill that instance and start Guake from gnome-terminal, the TERM variable is set correctly. So maybe this is an issue with GNOME and not necessarily Guake?
It appears to be a VTE bug cf: http://guake.org/ticket/249#comment:10
I am therefore reassigning this bug to VTE.
According to qense on the Guake bug tracker there is a patch available at:
This looks like a dup of 639280
