NAME

       Terminator - Multiple GNOME terminals in one window

SYNOPSIS

       terminator [options]

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents Terminator, a terminal emulator application.

       Terminator  is  a  program  that  allows  users  to  set up flexible arrangements of GNOME
       terminals. It is aimed at those who normally arrange lots of terminals  near  each  other,
       but don't want to use a frame based window manager.

OPTIONS

       This program follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two
       dashes (`-').  A summary of options is included below.

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options

       -v, --version
              Show the version of the Terminator installation

       -m, --maximise
              Start with a maximised window -M, --maximize Start with a maximized window

       -f, --fullscreen
              Start with a fullscreen window

       -b, --borderless
              Instruct the window manager not to  render  borders/decoration  on  the  Terminator
              window (this works well with -m)

       -H, --hidden
              Hide  the  Terminator  window  by  default.  Its visibility can be toggled with the
              hide_window keyboard shortcut (Ctrl-Shift-Alt-a by default)

       -T, --title
              Force the Terminator window  to  use  a  specific  name  rather  than  updating  it
              dynamically based on the wishes of the child shell.

       --geometry=GEOMETRY
              Specifies the preferred size and position of Terminator's window; see X(7).

       -e, --command=COMMAND
              Runs  the  specified  command  instead  of  your default shell or profile specified
              command. Note: if Terminator is launched as x-terminal-emulator -e behaves like -x,
              and the longform becomes --execute2=COMMAND

       -x, --execute COMMAND [ARGS]
              Runs  the  rest  of  the  command  line  instead  of  your default shell or profile
              specified command.

       --working-directory=DIR
              Set the terminal's working directory

       -g, --config FILE
              Use the specified FILE for configuration

       -r, --role=ROLE
              Set a custom WM_WINDOW_ROLE property on the window

       -l, --layout=LAYOUT
              Start Terminator with a specific layout. The argument here is the name of  a  saved
              layout.

       -s, --select-layout=LAYOUT
              Open the layout launcher window instead of the normal terminal.

       -p, --profile=PROFILE
              Use a different profile as the default

       -i, --icon=FORCEDICON
              Set a custom icon for the window (by file or name)

       -u, --no-dbus
              Disable DBus

       -d, --debug
              Enable  debugging  output  (please  use  this  when  reporting  bugs).  This can be
              specified twice to enable a built-in python debugging server.

       --debug-classes=DEBUG_CLASSES
              If this is specified as a comma separated  list,  debugging  output  will  only  be
              printed from the specified classes.

       --debug-methods=DEBUG_METHODS
              If  this  is  specified  as  a  comma separated list, debugging output will only be
              printed from the specified functions. If this is specified in addition to  --debug-
              classes, only the intersection of the two lists will be displayed

       --new-tab
              If  this is specified and Terminator is already running, DBus will be used to spawn
              a new tab in the first Terminator window.
