I want to launch terminator with multiple terminals with some starting on a different directory. The directories could change based on the $USER on different systems but I have them defined in .bashrc as environment variables. I tried to use the env variable MY_PATH in the directory config setting but that does not seem to work.

      directory = $MY_PATH
      order = 0
      parent = child19
      profile = default
      type = Terminal

terminator -l my_layout --working-directory=$MY_PATH works but starts only terminal 1 on $MY_PATH and the other terminals start on ~/home/$USER/. I don't know how to apply the working directory to all terminals of my_layout.

Any ideas on how to fix it or alternatives?
