My ultimate goal is to have a terminal with Unix commands (e.g.
ls instead of
dir), color, and working keys in my Windows 7 machine. My current attempt at getting this to work is using Git Bash in Console2. I created a new tab with:
Title: Git Bash Icon: C:\Program Files\Git\mingw64\share\git\git-for-windows.ico Shell: C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /C "C:\Program Files\Git\bin\bash.exe" --login -i Startup dir: C:\Users\evesforeva
Git Bash gives me the Unix commands. Adding ansicon gives me color. But when I type Ctrl+C, it closes the whole tab. I need it to stop processes like
rails server without closing the tab. I also tried different combinations of swapping
C:\Program Files\Git\bin\bash.exe for
C:\Program Files\Git\bin\sh.exe and got the same results.
A direct solution to the problem would be much appreciated, but if that's not possible, I’ll take anything that provides Unix commands, color, and working keys. I also tried using Git Bash directly with minTTY, but the arrow keys don't work and
irb exits after one command. I even went as far as trying to install Ubuntu. My HP Probook 650 G1 won't let me change any of the BOIS settings, so neither dual-booting nor VirtualBox worked.
How do I prevent Ctrl+C from closing the tab when running Git Bash in Console2?
