How do I use the terminal to open another terminal window but with a path I specify?
I am using automator to load my work stuff when I get to work, but I need to know how to do this:
Open Terminal and Type:
• cd Work/Company/Project/
And then new tab in that terminal window and cd to the same folder.
This opens a new terminal window from a command prompt on Mac OSX , executes "cd /" and then keeps the window on top:
osascript -e 'tell application "terminal"' -e 'do script "cd /"' -e 'end tell'
You can put this into a script like this:
#!/bin/sh osascript -e 'tell application "terminal"' -e "do script \"cd $1\"" -e 'end tell'
Hope this helps.
