I have installed Octave 3.0.0 on my Intel Mac OS 10.4.11. It seems to have configured itself to automatically run in the This behavior is fine with me, however, whenever I launch the to run a shell (e.g. bash or tcsh) it automatically launches in Octave. The first line in the Terminal is: imac-2006:~ louyclare$ exec '/Applications/' When I quit Octave, the window closes. Bringing up a new Terminal window simply re-launches Octave. This behavior is unaffected by the Terminal Preferences settings. The setting for "When creating a new Terminal window:" has two radio button options: 1) Execute the default login shell using /usr/bin/login and 2) Execute this comand (specify complete path): /I have /bin/bash in the area provided/. Does anybody know how I can run Octave in the and still launch in a shell?

Hi Louyclare,

This should be working per default. Normally, if you double-click's icon then a opens and executes Octave inside (so Octave doesn't run as a bash replacement but is executed from bash with the line exec '/Applications/' - can you reproduce that?).

If you double-click the icon then opens. There is some setting on Macs where this may be overwritten but it is not overwritten from Somebody already reported such a behaviour some time ago but I don't know how it was fixed, maybe this helps for you

If you find out more details then please let us know about it.


PS. My radio-button options settings of always is 1) Execute the default login shell using /usr/bin/login
