I've recently installed Guake and like it a lot. I'd like to set it as my preferred terminal application. That is, when I right-click on a bash script file, click "Open", and choose "Run in Terminal", I want it to open in a new Guake tab.
I'm not sure where to set Guake as the preferred app for "Run in Terminal". And I'm guessing that I might need the command to be something like
guake --new-tab=new --execute-command="COMMANDHERE", so how do I pass that parameter?
Ideally, I'd like a terminal invocation to open a new Guake tab, unless there is already one available. (Difficult to tell, what id there's already a command running in the existing tab?) Failing that, just opening a new Guake tab is ok. Also, is there an option to keep Guake hidden when this happens?
Based on How can I set default terminal used in Unity? I have already tried:
gconftool --type string --set /desktop/gnome/applications/terminal/exec guake- this made Guake appear when I type Ctrl-Alt-T.
\usr\bin\guakein Alternatives Configurator - this made no difference (having already made the previous change).
