Since Ubuntu 18.10 I’m experiencing a weird bug on Terminator, the terminal I use because of its broadcasting functionality.
The bug is known and tracked on launchpad but not fixed ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ so I found a quick way to fix it (tested up to 20.04), enjoy!
sudo mv /usr/bin/terminator /usr/bin/terminator.SAVE cat <<TERMINATOR > /tmp/terminator #!/bin/bash sh -c "DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS='' /usr/share/terminator/terminator" TERMINATOR chmod 755 /tmp/terminator sudo mv /tmp/terminator /usr/bin

In Ubuntu 20.04 installing Terminator using APT works but that character duplication bug is present.
I found several purported work-arounds but your actually works best..
Hi, In first thank you for your post, I have the same problem but your work around don’t works in my case.
I use Ubuntu 20.04 and Terminator 1.91
Thanks again 😉
I found another workaround for me, I fix my problem by comment the following line in /usr/share/terminator/terminator
# ibus_running = len(ibus_running) > 0
# if ibus_running:
# dbus_service = None
Now all works fine.
