Ubuntu – How to get Terminator to start up with the custom layout


Terminator is very powerful at organizing several computers or servers due to the split window and group all function. But here's the deal: I created my own Layout and would appreciate it to load at startup of terminator. Is that possible?

Best Answer

There is a very easy way to accomplish this:

  • Open Terminator
  • Right click -> Preferences
  • In the Layouts tab (to the right of the Profiles tab), edit the default one, you will see that it says Window | window0 and Terminal | child1.
  • For the Terminal | child1, you can set: a Profile (to choose from the installed ones), a Default command, and a Working directory.
  • Set it/them to whatever you like, close, reopen again...
  • ... and voilá!

Hope this helped!
