Simple Terminal (ST)

Enabling Login Terminal

Simple Terminal integrates settings during compilation, so it does not use any external configuration. Login shell can be set at run time by adding the -e argument:

$ st -e /bin/bash --login

This also works with any other shell that supports it:

$ st -e /bin/zsh --login

Window Manager Integration

To make this more seamless, you can set this as the default command in your window manager.


i3 uses a config file to set the terminal emulator. (This is typically stored at ~/.config/i3/config.) To start all terminals with login shell enabled, set with a command similar to this:

# start a terminal
bindsym $mod+Return exec st -e /bin/zsh --login # i3-sensible-terminal
