Preferences that are set for extraterm are not persistent #138
I am running both
I make a lot of adjustments to the appearance setting such as the colorscheme, font size etc., and then when I log in the next day (irrespective of whether from the same machine or another one), the settings all seem to revert to the defaults. Clearly, it is painful to reconfigure the settings again, only to discover that they are once again ephemeral.
How can I make the configurations persistent?
If you change some settings, exit Extraterm, and then immediately run it again, do you have the correct settings? On Windows Extraterm will place its config file in
What I could do is add a command line option to Extraterm to specify where to place this temp directory and also the config file. And/or I could add a small config file to the Extraterm installation files to do the same thing. Then you could configure that file and make a true "portable" version of Extraterm for yourself and your campus environment.
@sedwards2009 your explanation makes sense to me. Yes, the campus computers are set to wipe the entire C-drive and restore a university-preconfigured image overnight. All public computers on the campus (library, training rooms, etc.) automatically reboot at 12:15 AM each night. Only the H: drive allocated to each student/staff to store their files is persistent during their affiliation with the university.
While you make this enhancement for a truly portable setup, is there any temporary workaround for persistently placing the config file?
