In DTerm, one can open a full terminal application by typing - after a command entered at the DTerm prompt.

In a recent release, it is noted that support has been added for iTerm2 in DTerm via an AppleScript. However, I am unable to find any reference regarding how to enable this.

So, the question: How does one change the default full terminal application in DTerm?

  • Current alternative: Copy-paste the command and click into iTerm2 using Go2Shell. – user72923 Jun 13 '12 at 18:03
  • I'd say, check with their support on how this is supposed to work. – slhck Jun 13 '12 at 19:57

You need to make iTerm2 default term app. It can be done by clicking on corresponding entry of iTerm's menu.
Then, I suppose, you'll have to reload DTerm and it'll open iTerm app by default.


Time has passed and DTerm has been open-sourced! \o/

If you experience an issue with DTerm and a recent version of iTerm2 (maybe nightly). That could be the result of iTerm2's new Apple Scripting Bridge.

I have fixed it and here's a Pull Request for it.
