I migrated from Workstaion KDE to Kinoite yesterday, and am currently configuring it to suit my taste.
My terminal emulator of choice is Alacritty running Zsh.
I’ve installed Ubuntu, Fedora and Archlinux containers/toolboxes using distrobox.
I want keybindings to enter a toolbox in a new terminal window running Zsh. The three toolboxes should have different background/accent colors.
I’ve been looking around for a bit, but I’m unsure which approach will be best.
Binding f12+u to distrobox-enter -n ubuntu-toolbxusing bind, and setting up zsh with my preferred extensions, aliases, etc. in all containers one by one.
Somehow carrying over settings like preferred shell, aliases, extensions etc. from host system to containers, but using a separate alacritty config file for each container to change background color.
btw I’m having trouble using bind, is there a graphical way to achieve this on Plasma desktop?
Alright, that partially solves it for me. I just needed to look a bit deeper in the settings menus. Now I can launch Alacritty windows with these keybindings:
alt+shift+a: alacritty --command distrobox-enter -n arch-toolbx
alt+shift+u: alacritty --command distrobox-enter -n ubuntu-toolbx
alt+shift+f: alacritty --command distrobox-enter -n fedora-toolbx
What remains is to somehow identify which container runs in which terminal window
