Hello! I’m relatively new to Linux and Endeavour and I’ve been having a blast changing up and hacking around in my system. This isn’t so much of a tech support question as much as it is a tech “pre-support” question because I want to make sure I don’t cause any potential issues.
The default terminal emulator that gets installed with the Qtile version is Xfce, but I want to change it to Alacritty and delete Xfce. However, I’m kinda worried that if I delete Xfce it can cause compatibility issues with other programs. I know that the eos-welcome app has several commands that spawn a terminal, like the update manager or whatever, so I don’t want to break that by removing the terminal. I also know in the configs for Qtile that I can change the default terminal there pretty easily by changing a single variable, but I don’t know if that interacts with any other packages on the system or if it’d be just for Qtile.
So my question is, then, how would I go about changing my default terminal for these apps from Xfce to alacritty. Would I need to go into the configs for each individual app and change it or is there some sort of way I can universally change the default app so I don’t break anything?
