NAME

       ~/.config/terminator/config  -  the config file for Terminator terminal
       emulator.

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the Terminator config file.

       terminator/config is an  optional  file  to  configure  the  terminator
       terminal  emulator. It is used to control options not in gnome-terminal
       gconf profiles, or override gconf settings.

FILE LOCATION

       Normally the config file will be  ~/.config/terminator/config,  but  it
       may  be  overridden  with  $XDG_CONFIG_HOME  (in  which case it will be
       $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/terminator/config)

FILE FORMAT

       This is what a Terminator config file should look like:

         # This is a comment
         font = Fixed 10
         background_color = #000000
         foreground_color = "#FFFFFF" #Another comment. Quotes can be used for
       any value
         scrollback_lines = ’500’ #More comment. Single quotes are valid too
         cursor_blink = True
         custom_command  =  "echo \"foo#bar\"" #Final comment - this will work
       as expected.

         [keybindings]
         full_screen = <Ctrl><Shift>F11

OPTIONS

       These are the options Terminator currently supports:

       allow_bold (boolean)
              If true,  allow  applications  in  the  terminal  to  make  text
              boldface.  Default value: True

       enable_real_transparency (boolean)
              If  true,  Terminator  will  try  to  use  real  transparency if
              possible.  Default value: False

       NOTE: To enable transparency you should also  see  the  background_type
       and background_darkness settings below.

       audible_bell (boolean)
              If true, make a noise when applications send the escape sequence
              for the terminal bell.  Default value: True

       visible_bell (boolean)
              If  true,  flash  the terminal when applications send the escape
              sequence for the terminal bell.  Default value: False

       urgent_bell (boolean)
              If true, set the window manager "urgent" hint when  applications
              send  the  escale  sequence  for the terminal bell. Any keypress
              will cancel the urgent status.  Default value: False

       force_no_bell (boolean)
              If true, don’t make a noise or flash. All terminal bells will be
              ignored.  Default value: False

       use_theme_colors
              If  true,  ignore the configured colours and use values from the
              theme instead.  Default value: False

       background_color
              Default colour of terminal background, as a colour specification
              (can  be HTML-style hex digits, or a colour name such as "red").
              Note: You may need to set use_theme_colors=False to  force  this
              setting to take effect.  Default value: #000000

       background_darkness
              A  value  between  0.0 and 1.0 indicating how much to darken the
              background image. 0.0 means no darkness, 1.0 means  fully  dark.
              If the terminal is set to transparent, this setting controls how
              transparent it is. 0.0 means fully transparent, 1.0 means  fully
              opaque.  Default value: 0.5

       background_type
              Type  of terminal background. May be "solid" for a solid colour,
              "image" for an image, or "transparent" for full transparency  in
              compositing  window  managers,  otherwise  pseudo  transparency.
              Default value: solid

       background_image
              Path to  an  image  file  to  be  used  for  the  background  of
              terminals.  Default value: Nothing

       backspace_binding
              Sets  what code the backspace key generates. Possible values are
              "ascii-del"  for  the  ASCII  DEL  character,  "control-h"   for
              Control-H  (AKA  the  ASCII BS character), "escape-sequence" for
              the escape sequence typically  bound  to  backspace  or  delete.
              "ascii-del"  is  normally considered the correct setting for the
              Backspace key.  Default value: ascii-del

       delete_binding
              Sets what code the delete key  generates.  Possible  values  are
              "ascii-del"   for  the  ASCII  DEL  character,  "control-h"  for
              Control-H (AKA the ASCII BS  character),  "escape-sequence"  for
              the  escape  sequence  typically  bound  to backspace or delete.
              "escape-sequence" is normally considered the correct setting for
              the Delete key.  Default value: escape-sequence

       cursor_blink (boolean)
              Controls if the cursor blinks.  Default value: True

       cursor_color
              Default  colour  of  cursor,  as  a colour specification (can be
              HTML-style hex digits, or a colour name such as "red").  Default
              value: Current value of foreground_color

       cursor_shape
              Default shape of cursor. Possibilities are "block", "ibeam", and
              "underline".  Default value: block

       emulation
              Sets what type of terminal should be emulated.   Default  value:
              xterm

       font   An  Pango  font  name. Examples are "Sans 12" or "Monospace Bold
              14".  Default value: Mono 8

       foreground_color
              Default  colour  of  text  in  the   terminal,   as   a   colour
              specification  (can  be  HTML-style hex digits, or a colour name
              such as "red"). Note: You may need to set use_theme_colors=False
              to force this setting to take effect.  Default value: #AAAAAA

       scrollbar_position
              Where  to  put the terminal scrollbar. Possibilities are "left",
              "right", and "disabled".  Default value: right

       titlebars
              If true, a titlebar will be drawn for each terminal which  shows
              the current title of that terminal.  Default value: True

       titlebarzoomed
              If  true, a titlebar will be drawn on zoomed/maximised terminals
              which indicates how many are hidden.  Default value: True

       titletips
              If true, a tooltip will be available  for  each  terminal  which
              shows the current title of that terminal.  Default value: False

       scroll_background (boolean)
              If  true,  scroll the background image with the foreground text;
              if false, keep the image in a fixed position and scroll the text
              above it.  Default value: True

       scroll_on_keystroke (boolean)
              If  true,  pressing  a  key  jumps  the scrollbar to the bottom.
              Default value: True

       scroll_on_output (boolean)
              If true, whenever there’s new output the terminal will scroll to
              the bottom.  Default value: True

       alternate_screen_scroll (boolean)
              Whether  or not the mouse wheel scrolls alternate screen buffers
              (man, vim, mutt, etc). This is  the  default  behavior  of  VTE,
              however  Ubuntu  and possbly other distributions feature patched
              versions of VTE where this functionality is optional. The option
              only  effects  the  patched  versions  of  VTE,  otherwise it is
              ignored.  Default value: True

       scrollback_lines
              Number of scrollback lines to keep around. You can  scroll  back
              in the terminal by this number of lines; lines that don’t fit in
              the scrollback are discarded. Be careful with this setting; it’s
              the  primary  factor in determining how much memory the terminal
              will use.  Default value: 500

       focus  Sets what type of mouse events should determine terminal  focus.
              Can  be  "sloppy"  or  "click".  "mouse"  is also interpreted as
              "sloppy".  Default value: click

       focus_on_close
              Sets which terminal should get the focus when  another  terminal
              is  closed.  Values  can  be  "prev",  "next"  or "auto".  Using
              "auto", if the closed terminal is within a splitted window,  the
              focus  will  be on the sibling terminal rather than another tab.
              Default value: auto

       exit_action
              Possible values are "close" to close the terminal, and "restart"
              to restart the command.  Default value: close

       palette
              Terminals  have a 16-colour palette that applications inside the
              terminal can use. This is that palette, in the form of a  colon-
              separated  list  of  colour names. Colour names should be in hex
              format       e.g.       "#FF00FF".         Default        value:
              #000000000000:#CDCD00000000:#0000CDCD0000:#CDCDCDCD0000:#30BF30BFA38E:#A53C212FA53C:#0000CDCDCDCD:#FAFAEBEBD7D7:#404040404040:#FFFF00000000:#0000FFFF0000:#FFFFFFFF0000:#00000000FFFF:#FFFF0000FFFF:#0000FFFFFFFF:#FFFFFFFFFFFF

       word_chars
              When selecting text by word, sequences of these  characters  are
              considered  single  words. Ranges can be given as "A-Z". Literal
              hyphen (not expressing a range) should be  the  first  character
              given.  Default value: -A-Za-z0-9,./?%&#:_

       mouse_autohide (boolean)
              Controls whether the mouse cursor should be hidden while typing.
              Default value: True

       use_custom_command (boolean)
              If True, the value of custom_command will be used instead of the
              default shell.  Default value: False

       custom_command
              Command   to   execute   instead   of   the  default  shell,  if
              use_custom_command is set to True.  Default value: Nothing

       http_proxy
              URL of an HTTP proxy to use, e.g. http://proxy.lan:3128/ Default
              value: Nothing

       encoding
              Character set to use for the terminal.  Default value: UTF-8

       fullscreen (boolean)
              Controls  whether  the  Terminator  window  will  be  started in
              fullscreen mode Default value: False

       maximise (boolean)
              Controls whether the Terminator window will be started maximised
              Default value: False

       borderless (boolean)
              Controls  whether  the Terminator window will be started without
              window borders Default value: False

       hidden (boolean)
              Hides the Terminator window by default. Its  visibility  can  be
              toggled  with  the  hide_window  keybinding (Ctrl-Shift-Alt-a by
              default) Default value: False

       handle_size
              Controls the width of the separator between terminals.  Anything
              outside  the  range 0-5 (inclusive) will be ignored and use your
              default theme value.  Default value: -1

       f11_modifier (boolean)
              DEPRECATED. This option will disappear by 1.0. See [keybindings]
              instead.   If  this  is  set  to  True,  the fullscreen keyboard
              shortcut changes from F11 (like many GNOME apps) to  Ctrl-Shift-
              F11  (useful  if  you  use terminal applications which expect to
              receive F11.  Default value: False

       cycle_term_tab (boolean)
              If this is set to True,  when  switching  to  the  next/previous
              term,   Terminator   will  cycle  within  the  same  tab.  Ctrl-
              PageUp/PageDown can then be used to move from  one  tab  to  the
              other one.  Default value: True

       close_button_on_tab (boolean)
              If  set to True, tabs will have a close button on them.  Default
              value: True

       tab_position
              Defines where tabs are placed.  Can be any of: top, left, right,
              bottom.  Default value: top

       extreme_tabs (boolean)
              If set to True, tabs can be created within other tabs. Be warned
              that this can be very confusing and hard to use.  Default value:
              False

       hide_tabbar (boolean)
              If  set  to  True,  the tab bar will be hidden. This means there
              will be no visual indication of either how many tabs there  are,
              or  which  one  you  are  on.  Be  warned  that this can be very
              confusing and hard to use.  Default value: False

       scroll_tabbar (boolean)
              If set to True, the tab bar will  not  fill  the  width  of  the
              window.  The  titlebars of the tabs will only take as much space
              as is necessary for the text they contain. Except, that  is,  if
              the  tabs  no  longer fit the width of the window - in that case
              scroll buttons will appear to move through  the  tabs.   Default
              value: False

       copy_on_selection (boolean)
              If  set to True, text selections will be automatically copied to
              the clipboard, in addition to being made the Primary  selection.
              Default value: False

       try_posix_regexp (boolean)
              If set to True, URL matching regexps will try to use POSIX style
              first, and fall back on GNU style on failure.   If  you  are  on
              Linux  but URL matches don’t work, try setting this to True.  If
              you are not on Linux, but you get VTE warnings on startup saying
              "Error  compiling  regular  expression",  set  this  to False to
              silence them (they  are  otherwise  harmless).   Default  value:
              False on Linux, True otherwise.
