I am on
Debian Jessie with
Mate (v1.8.1) desktop environment.
I have installed
byobu and wanted to launch it every time I open a terminal so I went into the profile preferences, checked Run a custom command instead of my shell and add the following command:
It worked fine but I had the annoying startup message from
byobu on each opening so I tried to mask the output by changing naively the command to:
/usr/bin/byobu > /dev/null
And here was my mistake... Now every time I launch a terminal it is closed immediately : I have no longer access to my profile preferences to edit the command.
I do have access to
Xterm though (i.e. I have a way to execute command lines).
- How can I prevent the custom command to run on terminal launch ?
- Where is stored the
mate-terminalconfig file ? (so I can maybe manually removed the profile preferences)
P.S. I am aware of the
--profile=PROFILE_NAME option of
mate-terminal that I could launch from
Xterm, unfortunately I have only one profile : the corrupted one.
I cannot find an option to launch
mate-terminal with no preferences...
