Description

Currently, the handy tool termhere:

http://www.haikuware.com/view-details/system-files/tracker-add-ons/termhere

doesn't work with Haiku.

Oliver pointed out that removing 'cd' from /boot/beos/etc/profile allows for proper operation of termhere. I haven't noticed any side effects of doing this.

It does have a side effect, since Terminal would then launch with the directory you started it from - ie. if you run Tracker from someplace else, and then launch a Terminal, you would get that other directory as a starting point. Which is not really that bad, IMO.

BTW the TermHere (now OpenTerminal) docs clearly state that you have to remove that line from /etc/profile -- it's the same thing on BeOS, in case you wondered.

Any other opinions on the matter?

BTW it currently has a side effect anyway, as Tracker is obviously started from the root directory, and such is the Terminal - but that could be easily changed.

+1 for removing the "cd" in /etc/profile and starting Tracker and Deskbar in the home directory.
