In Unstable, using ROX, how to right-click/open terminal "here" ??


OK
so, for example,
in PMagic, if I open pcmanfm and go into a mounted hd folder
like I open the folder "sda3" and go into a folder named "grml" there
if I right-click it will offer "open a terminal here"
and then when it opens it says
Code:
root@pmagic/mnt/sda3/grml#
but if I do thids in grml/debian using rox
the terminal opens on /home/user_name

how do i get rox configured so it opens the term wherever I'm at?
thanks

On my debian testing box, terminal will open in the directory where you are at the moment.
Seems to me it's related to grml.
Perhaps you can change the settings using
Code:
roxterm-config

thanks repo
it says command not found....

this grml is debian unstable

where would a rox config file be?
I looked in /home/grml/any .folders
and /usr/share/rox too...

ok
I installed "roxterm"
a gui pops up
and so what do i have to tell it to do repo?

I already tried making it default term for rox
but it still opens on /home/grml instead of where I'm at....

thanks

I have no idea, searched in the settings, but can't find anything that could set the directory when you open roxterm.

You need to open it in a folder for it to be where you are.

yea
thats what I mean..

if I'm using rox, and I've got rox opened on /mnt/sda3/home
and I right-click empty space and choose "window/terminal here"
from rox menu
it opens on the /root folder, not /mnt/sda3/home

is that what you mean?

Does this also happen when you open a terminal, in a directory of the home/user_name ?

Yeah. For some reason it's not acting normally for you. If you're in a folder and you open the terminal in that folder it should be the path.

God, I really don't know how to say that

I got my fluxbox menu to run various terms by user or root

xterm opens with "grml@grml" in /home/grml

sudo xterm opens "root@grml" in /root

all the others too are like that

Basically, I'm tired of having to open a term and type in

Quote:
cd /mnt/sda3/grml/squashfs-root
as I'm remastering

If I use pmagic I can just open pcmanfm, go to /mnt folder
and go to sda3, etc etc and then right-click/open-term-here
and it opens on the folder I'm in

I want that ability with rox too....

Maybe I should just install pcmanfm?

Why don't you make an alias in .bash_profile or /etc/bashrc

Code:
alias remaster='cd /mnt/sda3/grml/squashfs-root'
