How do you use Gnome Terminal instead of Xterm ??
« on: May 08, 2006, 01:53:31 am »
Settings -> Environment -> Terminal to Launch Console Programs...

What is the correct parameter list here ?? When I run a program the console window pops up briefly and then closes. Only way to run program from IDE is with debugger using Shift+F7. Help appreciated.

"gnome-terminal -x" should help you ;)

I install the Code:Blocks at Ubuntu 12.04 and i dislike the xterm because the size is very small for my screen, Thanks for your hint about the gnome-terminal!

In this topic: http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/topic,16826.0.html
there is a bit more correct description of the way to call gnome-terminal.

From Settings > Environment, replace
Code: [Select]
xterm -T $TITLE -e with
Code: [Select]
gnome-terminal --title=$TITLE -x.

This is outdated and won't work with a gnome-terminal spawning a single process (the one in gnome3).
For the most reliable operation the information provided by Jens is the most correct one.
