    how to change terminal app for nautilus-open-terminal?

    Hi:

    i've fallen in love with Terminator as a replacement for the standard gnome-terminal app.

    However, i'm also very much in the habit of using the nautilus-open-terminal extension for launching new terminal sessions.

    i'd like nautilus-open-terminal to launch Terminator rather than gnome-terminal.

    A quick search of my system and the web didn't reveal anything. i didn't find a gconf setting to control this. A quick look at the source code didn't help much either.

    ideas? suggestions?

    This should work: Go to System>>Preferences>>Preferred Applications. Then Go to the System tab and change the terminal in the drop down menu.

    I can confirm that that works, and won't potentially cause apps to break (like my idea might have done). Good suggestion, siddarthkaki. :)

    Dang, that was too simple (and obvious).

    Thanks to both of you.
