terminator [options]

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.

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.
