CONFIG_NATIVE_UART_AUTOATTACH_DEFAULT_CMD

Default command to attach the UART to a new terminal

Type: string

Help

If the native_posix executable is called with the --attach_uart
command line option, this will be the default command which will be
run to attach a new terminal to the 1st UART.
Note that this command must have one, and only one, '%s' as
placeholder for the pseudoterminal device name (e.g. /dev/pts/35)
This is only applicable if the UART_0 is configured to use its own
PTY with NATIVE_UART_0_ON_OWN_PTY.
The 2nd UART will not be affected by this option.
If you are using GNOME, then you can use this command string
'gnome-terminal -- screen %s'
