The below is my Terminator profile. I want it to always open any shell and window with the light profile.

If I'm not mistaken, with the configuration below it should open with the "light" profile by default, but it does not. How do I make it use the "light" profile by default?

[global_config]
[keybindings]
  new_tab = <Ctrl>n
  next_tab = <Ctrl>Right
  split_vert = <Ctrl>v
  split_horiz = <Ctrl>h
  prev_tab = <Ctrl>Left
[profiles]
  [[light]]
    palette = "#073642:#d30102:#859900:#b58900:#6c71c4:#d33682:#2aa198:#839496:#586e75:#cb4b16:#859900:#b58900:#268bd2:#dc322f:#2aa198:#93a1a1"
    use_system_font = False
    cursor_color = "#002b36"
    foreground_color = "#002b36"
    show_titlebar = False
    background_color = "#eee8d5"
  [[dark]]
    palette = "#073642:#d30102:#859900:#b58900:#6c71c4:#d33682:#2aa198:#839496:#586e75:#cb4b16:#859900:#b58900:#268bd2:#dc322f:#2aa198:#93a1a1"
    use_system_font = False
    cursor_color = "#eee8d5"
    foreground_color = "#eee8d5"
    show_titlebar = False
    background_color = "#002b36"
[layouts]
    [[default]]
    [[[child1]]]
      type = Terminal
      parent = window0
      profile = light
    [[[window0]]]
      profile = light
      type = Window
      parent = ""
[plugins]

1 Answer 1

You need to run the terminator like
terminator -p light
or
terminator --profile=light

An easier way to do this would be to make a Bash/Zsh alias like this:
alias terminator="terminator --profile=light"
