NAME
       Terminator - Multiple GNOME terminals in	one window

SYNOPSIS
       terminator [options]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page	documents Terminator, a	terminal emulator application.

       Terminator  is  a program that allows users to set up flexible arrange-
       ments of	GNOME terminals. It is aimed at	 those	who  normally  arrange
       lots  of	terminals near each other, but don't want to use a frame based
       window manager.

OPTIONS
       This program follow the usual GNU command line syntax,  with  long  op-
       tions starting with two dashes (`-').  A	summary	of options is included
       below.

       -h, --help
	      Show summary of options

       -v, --version
	      Show the version of the Terminator installation

       -m, --maximise
	      Start with a maximised window -M,	--maximize Start with a	 maxi-
	      mized window

       -f, --fullscreen
	      Start with a fullscreen window

       -b, --borderless
	      Instruct	the window manager not to render borders/decoration on
	      the Terminator window (this works	well with -m)

       -H, --hidden
	      Hide the Terminator window by default.  Its  visibility  can  be
	      toggled with the hide_window keyboard shortcut (Ctrl-Shift-Alt-a
	      by default)

       -T, --title
	      Force the	Terminator window to use a specific name  rather  than
	      updating it dynamically based on the wishes of the child shell.

       --geometry=GEOMETRY
	      Specifies	 the  preferred	size and position of Terminator's win-
	      dow; see X(7).

       -e, --command=COMMAND
	      Runs the specified command instead of your default shell or pro-
	      file  specified  command.	 Note: if Terminator is	launched as x-
	      terminal-emulator	-e behaves like	-x, and	the  longform  becomes
	      --execute2=COMMAND

       -x, --execute COMMAND [ARGS]
	      Runs  the	rest of	the command line instead of your default shell
	      or profile specified command.

       --working-directory=DIR
	      Set the terminal's working directory

       -g, --config FILE
	      Use the specified	FILE for configuration

       -r, --role=ROLE
	      Set a custom WM_WINDOW_ROLE property on the window

       -l, --layout=LAYOUT
	      Start Terminator with a specific layout. The  argument  here  is
	      the name of a saved layout.

       -s, --select-layout=LAYOUT
	      Open the layout launcher window instead of the normal terminal.

       -p, --profile=PROFILE
	      Use a different profile as the default

       -i, --icon=FORCEDICON
	      Set a custom icon	for the	window (by file	or name)

       -u, --no-dbus
	      Disable DBus

       -d, --debug
	      Enable  debugging	 output	(please	use this when reporting	bugs).
	      This can be specified twice to enable a built-in	python	debug-
	      ging server.

       --debug-classes=DEBUG_CLASSES
	      If this is specified as a	comma separated	list, debugging	output
	      will only	be printed from	the specified classes.

       --debug-methods=DEBUG_METHODS
	      If this is specified as a	comma separated	list, debugging	output
	      will  only  be  printed from the specified functions. If this is
	      specified	in addition to --debug-classes,	only the  intersection
	      of the two lists will be displayed

       --new-tab
	      If  this	is  specified  and Terminator is already running, DBus
	      will be used to spawn a new tab in the first Terminator window.
