I just upgraded to Catalina 10.15.1 and having some issues opening Terminal from Double Commander

If i click the terminal button that corresponds to this actions: enter image description here

Now the Terminal just wont show, just nothing happens.

If I press shift+enter that suppose to open terminal in the current dir I've got this error

/var/tmp/doublecmd-Xwwn: line 5: /Users/A/.yarn: is a directory
Saving session...
...copying shared history...
...saving history...truncating history files...


F9 does not work either (no terminal shown).
I am on DC 0.9.6 beta Mac OS X >= 10.11, 64 bit, doublecmd-0.9.6-9018.cocoa.x86_64.zip.

Any ideas?

P.S: In Catalina they've changed the default shell https://support.apple.com/en-au/HT208050 may be it is something to do with that?

Just created a custom toolbar action that solved my problem, will stick to that for now:

    @bmike cm_RunTerm is there by default, yeah there is the whole list of other actions, just picked cm_Rename and cm_About for a test - so can confirm that other commands works fine – kuncevic.dev Dec 3 '19 at 1:34
  • I wonder if external command /bin/bash or /bin/zsh would get you a shell? – bmike Dec 3 '19 at 2:08

    In my opinion it's a faulty terminal.sh in ../Double Commander/Contents/MacOS/scripts/! It creates a temp script which should be executed (cd to selected dir) in a new? Terminal window and removes itself afterwards. The jump to dir is ommited... – klanomath Dec 3 '19 at 2:52
  • @klanomath that’s got to be the answer – bmike Dec 3 '19 at 4:26

Had the same issue. Solution that worked for me:

  1. In DC go to Configuration -> Options -> Terminal
  2. In section "Command for just running terminal:" was Command /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app
  3. Rewrite it to the /System/Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app
  4. Save changes and now when you press Fn + F9 terminal will open in current directory just like before
