Description Christophe 2004-03-10 11:47:59 UTC
Creation of new profile in gnome-terminal is applied to all open terminal. Using gnome-terminal- Bug can be produced in two ways via Edit->Profiles and via File->New profile. Step by step of Edit case below.

Probably related issue: new profile is set as default profile.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open two gnome-terminal with different profiles (just for illustration, not needed)
2. In one, go to Edit, Profiles
3. Select New, and give a name "Demo"
4. When you click OK, this Demo profile is applied to all open terminal.

Actual Results:  
Demo profile is applied to all gnome-terminal.

Expected Results:  
Should not be applied to any terminal, if created from Edit -> Profiles, or
should be applied only to current window if created from File -> New profile

Comment 1 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-11 13:38:27 UTC
could just as well be a feature (?) but i guess you are right.

should push upstream
Comment 2 Christophe 2004-03-11 14:47:08 UTC
I agree it can be considered trivial, but I hardly see how it could be considered a feature... it nullified the advantage of having separate profiles.

I used profiles to distinguish which machine I am connected to. With 10-20 terminals open at a time (distributed computing on cluster), having all of them "reset" to same profile is annoying to say the least.

This is upstream here:
