noob here, i just want to change the default terminal. I was able to change the shortcut to launch my preferred terminal emulator in the i3 config but how do i change the default terminal for everything else?
For example, when i’m on thunar and open a directory and then right click from there there is an option open in terminal but it launches the default terminal which is xfce terminal and the same thing when i run the eos update notifier configuration tool it runs the xfce terminal. how do i change the default terminal, sort of globally?
thanks a lot for all inputs
Also will need to change
Mod + enter keybinding in
Just a question - does that lose you the drop-down that comes with xfce-terminal in 13 usage? No go for me
I really appreciate what you said, but i feel like this only solves it for it for thunar. if some other app had to launch a terminal, it will probably launch a different default terminal.
I was hoping for something more global that affects the whole system, but it looks like i really just need to change this for every app that might need to launch the terminal
Change this line in the default config in
~/.config/i3/config and set your prefered terminal application in place of
xfce4-terminal. Restart i3 inplace with Mod+Shift+R for changes to take effect:
# start a terminal
bindsym $mod+Return exec xfce4-terminal
This will only change the terminal in i3. For xfce apps like thunar open the file
~/.config/xfce4/helpers.rc and add this line
TerminalEmulator=custom-TerminalEmulator. The next time you want to open a terminal window, xfce will ask you to choose an emulator. You can just add the name there, example
yep I just found out
sorry for that
