If you’re running GNOME Builder with an unpatched vte, you may have noticed the annoying notification control sequence in Builder’s embedded terminal. Christian Hergert told me there’s a vte patch that fixes this, but it hasn’t been merged upstream. He also told me the workaround is to unset PROMPT_COMMAND. I’m too lazy to do this every time I open Builder, so this is what’s now in my .bashrc file:

parent=$(ps -ocommand= -p $PPID | awk -F/ '{print $NF}' | awk '{print $1}')
if [ "x$parent" = "xgnome-builder" ]; then
    unset PROMPT_COMMAND
fi

    Another workaround: ‘jhbuild uninstall vte’

    (Upstream vte is incompatible with Fedora’s job completed notifications.)
