Trying here to set a c++ application to run on gnome-terminal instead of eclipse console from within eclipse itself.

Already done it with Java, but with c++ the menus are different.


That's it, finally managed to enable it, took 6 hours researching. Got it with help from https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/305157/.

Entered in Run Configuration, in perspective and set:

At Main tab:

Project: nameofproject

C/C++ Application: /usr/bin/gnome-terminal

Arguments tab:

Program arguments: -e ./nameofproject*

** you can add --window-with-profile=PROFILENAME gnome-terminal setting to run it with other profiles.

Working directory:

Here set the exactly file location directory:


And deselect 'Use default'

Environment tab:

No changes

Common tab:

Deselect Allocate Console (necessary for input) in Standard Input and Output frame.

Apply and run.
