xfce4-terminal open in new tab issue

Hi dear,
I'm using:
gnome-terminal 3.28.2

In one xfce-terminal when I use

xfce4-terminal --tab

, there will create a new window with 2 tabs.
But in gnome-terminal with

gnome-terminal --tab

, there will create a new tab inside the gnome window, which is what i need.
I also tried your command

 bash -c "pgrep xfce4-terminal && xfce4-terminal --tab || xfce4-terminal"

This still create a new window.

Ah, I forgot about that option.

For xfce4-terminal, use the following command:

 bash -c "pgrep xfce4-terminal && xfce4-terminal --tab || xfce4-terminal"

Basically that means if xfce4-terminal s running, use the "--tab" parameter, otherwise not.

Hello and welcome.

I've created your own thread for this issue. It shouldn't be opening a new window unless it can't find the existing process.

Can you show the results of:

ps -ef | grep terminal

...before and after running "xfce4-terminal --tab"?
