NAME

Terminator - Multiple GNOME terminals in one window

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

terminator [options]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents Terminator, a terminal emulator application.

Terminator is a program that allows users to set up flexible arrangements of GNOME terminals. It is aimed at those who normally arrange lots of terminals near each other, but don’t want to use a frame based window manager.

OPTIONS

This program follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (‘-’). A summary of options is included below.
-h, --help Show summary of options
-v, --version
  Show the version of the Terminator installation
-m, --maximise
  Start with a maximised window
-f, --fullscreen
  Start with a fullscreen window
-b, --borderless
  Instruct the window manager not to render borders/decoration on the Terminator window (this works well with -m)
-H, --hidden
  Hide the Terminator window by default. Its visibility can be toggled with the hide_window keyboard shortcut (Ctrl-Shift-Alt-a by default)
-T, --title
  Force the Terminator window to use a specific name rather than updating it dynamically based on the wishes of the child shell.
--geometry=GEOMETRY
  Specifies the preferred size and position of Terminator’s window; see X(7).
-e, --command=COMMAND
  Runs the specified command instead of your default shell or profile specified command
-x, --execute COMMAND [ARGS]
  Runs the rest of the command line instead of your default shell or profile specified command.
--working-directory=DIR
  Set the terminal’s working directory
-r, --role=ROLE
  Set a custom WM_WINDOW_ROLE property on the window
-c, --classname=CLASSNAME
  Set a custom name (WM_CLASS) property on the window
-l, --layout=LAYOUT
  Start Terminator with a specific layout. The argument here is the name of a saved layout.
-p, --profile=PROFILE
  Use a different profile as the default
-i, --icon=FORCEDICON
  Set a custom icon for the window (by file or name)
-u, --no-dbus
  Disable DBus
-d, --debug
  Enable debugging output (please use this when reporting bugs). This can be specified twice to enable a built-in python debugging server.
--debug-classes=DEBUG_CLASSES
  If this is specified as a comma separated list, debugging output will only be printed from the specified classes.
--debug-methods=DEBUG_METHODS
  If this is specified as a comma separated list, debugging outut will only be printed from the specified functions. If this is specified in addition to --debug-classes, only the intersection of the two lists will be displayed
--new-tab
  If this is specified and Terminator is already running, DBus will be used to spawn a new tab in the first Terminator window.
