Default x-terminal-emulator does not appear to accept comand line args

Hi all,

x-terminal-emulator is a script stand-in that simply redirects the command line + options to gnome-terminal.

if you try, for example,

x-terminal-emulator --geometry=80x50

it doesn't seem to work.

bug ?

Brian

Please provide the output of `ls -l /etc/alternatives/x-terminal-emulator`

It is not necessarily a script, but a series of links which route to whatever terminal emulator you currently have configured.

aha, I did this :

which x-terminal-emulator

and got this :

/usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator

which is a script.

here's the output of ls -l /etc/alternatives/x-terminal-emulator

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 31 Jun 12 2009 /etc/alternatives/x-terminal-emulator -> /usr/bin/gnome-terminal.wrapper

Hum... here (lenny) neither works (gnomer-terminal launches but the
parameter is ignored).

But curiously "x-terminal-emulator --help" does work as expected, that
is, it displays the gnome-terminal help.
