Gnome-Terminal (using this as an example as I have experience with it) has the option '--tab-with-profile' that allows you to open multiple terminals with their own predefined settings when the program starts.

Please could PCManFM-Mod have similar functionality where you could define a set of tabs with paths to browse to on startup?

E.g.:

pcmanfm-mod --tab '/mnt/Storage_1/Temporary Storage Folder' --tab '/mnt/Storage_6/KVIrc Download Folder' (and so on)

This would allow me to easily knock up a bash script to start a predefined PCManFM-Mod 'session' at will, rather than manually setting up the standard locations every time.

Thanks

    This is already an option - just list folders on the command line, or use -t to add tabs to a running instance.

    Thanks - I guess I need to dig about for the documentation before I ask (pcmanfm only has a placeholder manpage).

    You can use
    pcmanfm-mod --help
    to see the command line usage.
