Preserve CWD in Gnome Terminal


Current Working directory is not preserved in gnome terminal (bash/zsh) fix. I faced this issue when I recently switched to Manjaro linux. Everything was working fine until I noticed that the current working directory was not being preserved by the gnome-terminal when I created a new tab with Ctrl + Shift + T. It worked fine in Fedora and Ubuntu that I used earlier.


You can add this command to you shell's confuguration file (.zshrc / .bashrc)
if the is not avaible you can just google it

# including this ensures that new gnome-terminal tabs keep the parent `pwd` !
if [ -e /etc/profile.d/ ]; then
    . /etc/profile.d/
