As said, I'd like to change default terminal. I've set ctr+alt+t shortcut and it starts xfce4 terminal. But it's bothersome sometimes. There's an option open in terminal/open terminal when u click rmb, but it still opens previous terminal, even though I've set xfce4 as default using this:

sudo update-alternatives --config x-terminal-emulator

Does anyone know how to change it?

    Whats the output of update-alternatives --get-selections | grep 'x-term'? – heemayl Mar 18 '17 at 17:42
  • x-terminal-emulator manual /usr/bin/xfce4-terminal.wrapper – Taki Nikt Mar 18 '17 at 19:26

The solution is described here: Xubuntu - change default terminal to Terminator

In short, just type:

sudo exo-preferred-applications

and select the new terminal emulator.
