Can't make new terminal tiling window (or entirely new window) to inherit profile / directory #1208
Got problem with Tilix not inheriting current directory and environment. Got the option under Settings -> Global checked "New window inherits directory and profile from active terminal" but opening a new tiling window or entirely new separate still puts me back at home directory and stuff like nvm reverts to the default configuration. (if I switched to different node version in the previous terminal)
I also checked run the command as login shell as per issue under tilix but nothing.
Running Solus with zsh.
Huh, that's interesting. I just switched to bash (by simply typing bash in the terminal) cd'ed into the directory and it opened zsh session with the correct directory. However, opening new session from zsh results in home path.
@gnunn1 I actually have no idea about vte.sh, at least based on your wiki issue, it's nowhere to be found in /etc/profile.d even profile.d itself doesn't exist.
@gnunn1 with gnome terminal it's the same as Tilix. Bash works fine and inherits stuff properly. Zsh inherits from bash but then on tilix any new zsh session results in home while in gnome terminal it results in the "last bash -> zsh opened window" if that makes sense. So if I use bash, open new session under /git/projects then zsh session will inherit that path, but if I cd directory up and end up under /git and open new zsh -> zsh window then it will revert back to /git/projects under gnome-terminal BUT under home in Tilix.
So should I bug Solus devs about vte then?
