I try to open a new terminal window in XFCE and activate python3 virtualenv in there using the following line in a bash script:
xfce4-terminal --working-directory=$HOME/path/to/project --maximize \ -e 'bash -c "source $HOME/path/to/project/venv/bin/activate; bash"'
The strange thing is that the virtualenv gets kind of activated since:
shows the correct path to the virtualenv directory and the project seems to be working fine.
However I don't see the
(venv) to the left from the shell prompt. Moreover, when I enter
deactivate it complains that no such command can be found.
Is there a proper way to solve this problem?
