Hi, there was a question on zim and opening terminal a while ago. I didn't really understand what that was about so I will start over again. I am looking for a solution or clever suggestions to the idea of opening a new terminal (or a terminal tab by issuing a dbus command if a terminal already exist) with the working directory given by the link I am clicking. In plain zim wiki source this link would be something like this: [[uri+xterm:///home/svennb/path/to/jira_12345|jira_12345]] Idea is that when I click that link, I get a terminal window with cwd in the particular directory. If I click on further such uri+xterm links, I will get another tab in an already existing terminal window, but that may wait for later. What I have tried is to set up an application for a link like 'uri+xterm://' to be terminator --working-directory=%S,, but that failed. right-click and open-with only give me the option to configure a program to open the link. reason I use terminator is that I had the idea to use some kind of session management for terminator to pop up a preconfigured working terminal with splits and all, but that is for later. Current workaround is to just have a link to the directory which wil open the file browser and then open a terminal in the current file browser path, but that is a bit tedious and often leaves a lot of windows on my screen.
