Can Not seem to change the terminal (Arch Linux)
« on: January 12, 2024, 04:34:43 am »
Good evening, i cant seem to change the terminal from termite in code::blocks.

I have gnome-terminal installed and would like to use that but when i change it via [settings -> environment -> terminal to launch console programs] and try to build or debug, i'm instantly met with a -1 status code. There is no different output in the build log other than the terminal name and then the status code.

Ive searched online and that led me down a rabbit hole of editing my /etc/ and ~/.bashrc files to no avail.

figured id ask for some assistance here as a last resort as i'm unsure what direction to go from here to solve the issue.

1. Use help to learn the terminal options of the new terminal command you wish to use.
2. If needed use help to learn the options of the old/standard terminal command.
3. Change the options in the CB terminal command

That is what I did about 5 to 10 years ago; and it worked for me.

I would try the below; but, I thought it was different than that.
