Launch specific Terminal profiles?

Post by ken » Thu Jun 02, 2016 4:59 pm

The Terminal profiles used to be individual files, but now that they're all in one files, is there a way via LaunchBar to open specific profiles?

Thanks.

Thanks, but this is for OS X.

It's a spam bot, not a real user.

Oh, weird. Thanks. The reply looked legit, if misunderstood. :)

It's one of the better bots, and it has 35 posts here since no one with OD appears to be monitoring reported spam posts in the forum. All which makes it look somewhat legit.

You can trigger a script something like this:

tell application "Terminal" to set (do script "")'s current settings to settings set "Homebrew"

There doesn’t seem to be any other way to create a tab or window other than by using “do script”. Feel free to file a bug.

What I really wish were possible by script, and seems to be completely inaccessible, is the “Open Window Group” items in the Window menu. I am just used to triggering them by using the keyboard to search the Help menu.

Thanks. I've just started using Command key numbers to access them.
