Also, every time I start Geany the VTE starts in the same directory. If I edit files in other directories and shut down Geany, when I restart it the VTE is still in the same original directory. Is there a way I can change the directory that the VTE starts in?
To add one point about the VTE: when working on an app with such a dir structure: /app /app/lib /app/gen then the VTE is unable to "follow" the dir changes, when switching from one file in a subdir to a file in the other subdir. Actually, the dir change works only in one direction, depending on which subdir was first visited. Eg if I first edited a code file inside /lib, then later changing from a file in /gen to a file in /lib will be followed by the VTE, but the opposite won't work. It's not a big issue, just need top type "cd .. ; cd gen", but it's systematic so a bit annoying after a while. ("follow the path of the current file" is set, indeed)
I can't reproduce this. Just to make sure I did try it correctly, I made a short screencast: http://www.uvena.de/tmp/geany_vte_follow.ogv
At least in this test case it worked as expected. In case I did something wrong, could you provide a tarball with an example directory layout which fails for you?
We have exchanged about ths issue some months ago. When I talked about it, it seemed rather systematic but when I wanted to produce an example to send it to you I couldn't reproduce it. This bug is crazy! This time I thought I had caught the situation in which it happens, bug again I cannot reproduce it anymore, while I had it everyday for ~ 5 days. (I was working in // on two similar apps in python and Lua.) Tell you more when it comes back and I understand it better. Next time, I'll freeze and save the situation as soon as it comes.
