Gnome-terminal's new instances open in root folder `/`, `--working-directory` option does not work
Hi, this is Arch linux speaking after recent upgrade to 3.36.
iago-lito@etak:~$ gnome-terminal -- bash
Used to open a new instance of gnome terminal in working directory
~. Now, the prompt is located at
/ instead. Even if I
iago-lito@etak:~$ gnome-terminal --working-directory=/home/iago-lito -- bash
I get a new window opened as
just like the current or requested working directory were ignored. This is not specific to
bash, since it also occurs with
tmux, and even a simple program doing
pwd > /home/iago-lito/where_has_it_opened reveals that the new gnome-terminal always opens under directory
Is this an expected change? If yes, how to work around it? If not, how to fix it?
Here is more information that may be useful:
$ gnome-shell --version GNOME Shell 3.36.0 $ gnome-terminal --version # GNOME Terminal 220.127.116.11 using VTE 0.60.0 +BIDI +GNUTLS +ICU +SYSTEMD $ uname -a Linux etak 5.5.8-arch1-1 #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri, 06 Mar 2020 00:57:33 +0000 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Thank you for support :)
