I want to use a nautilus script to open a (gnome-) terminal with a tmux session (or start one) at a specific location and then execute some commands in this terminal (e.g. nvim $file).
I've encountered 2 problems however:
1: I have "Run a custom command instead of my shell" at "tmux", such that every terminal starts in a tmux session. This seems to negate the ability to open the terminal at a given location. What I tried is putting an executable test.sh file in
~/.local/share/nautilus/scripts/ with content:
#!/bin/bash gnome-terminal --working-directory=$NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_CURRENT_URI
this works on a blank profile. With "tmux" as startup command however I just get a blank terminal at ~
2: If I try to use any command after that, nothing happens.
does nothing, just as
echo "hi" and
exec echo 'hi'
Could someone explain the behaviour to me?
Meanwhile I've deactivated the "Run a custom command" setting in terminal. However, still I can only change the working directory (open terminal here), but cannot issue any further commands.
My newest test script containing only:
#!/bin/bash zenity --info --text="$NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_FILE_PATHS" gnome-terminal -e "ls"
Does somehow change the working directory to the one, that the nautilus script is started from! Also it shows the results of the ls command, but in the terminal a dialog band is dropped down in blue saying: "The child process exited normally with status 0." And a Relaunch button to the right. - I guess this means, that a new session or terminal or so is started (the child), but it doesn't continue, such that I could eventually use it!?
Can someone maybe clarify what happens here?
