I'm working on a GTK3 theme and I use
GTK_DEBUG=interactive to test changes in the CSS.
I start an application with the gtk inspector attached, I launch it with:
$ GTK_DEBUG=interactive <name>
This works for normal applications but not for MATE's file manager Caja. When used with Caja, the application appears to launch, then close, then open again and appears without the gtk inspector.
$ kilall caja && GTK_DEBUG=interactive caja
But this had the same result.
How can I launch an instance of Caja with the gtk inspector?
Once Caja finishes loading, it appears to detach itself from the shell I'm launching it from. This may be what's causing it to lose the debug modules I'm trying to load with it.
