I have set the default terminal emulator to terminator using
update-alternatives and I can open terminator now with ctrl-alt-t, but when I use the right click menu on the desktop or in a folder it will open gnome-terminal.
Is there another setting to change to fix this?
I've edited compiz to try the 3d cube effect and from then had to reset compiz to default settings to revert which reset my terminal default. To get ctrl-alt-t working after this I also had to do
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec 'terminator'. I found this suggestion in
How can I set default terminal used in Unity?, but this did not make it so the right click option open terminator.
I am using Ubuntu 15.10
