Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 769645
--tab command line switch does not work
Last modified: 2012-01-16 03:36:50 EST
Description of problem:
--tab command line switch does not work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GNOME Terminal 3.2.1
($ gnome-terminal --version)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open an instance of gnome-terminal
2. type 'gnome-terminal --tab'
3. press <Enter>
A new *window* opens instead of new tab.
A new tab in the last-opened window with the default profile should open.
Exact version is a gnome-terminal-3.2.1-2.fc16.x86_64
The system is up to date (i.e. all packages are updated via yum)
Same bug (googled), but it is very old: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-terminal/+bug/117333
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
--tab works. I just doesn't do what you think it does.
'last-opened window' refers to the windows opened by the current commandline.
gnome-terminal --tab --tab --window --tab
to see what I mean
Aaargh! Now I got it, thanks.
But one question resides: is there any option/switch to open a new tab inside the current window?
Btw, my goal is to open many tabs with different titles and current directories using command (not to do it manually once and once again).
