default terminal in xfce4
Very Low


Description Daichi Kawahata 2005-05-04 05:00:36 CEST
I've noticed that script xfterm4 in xfce-utils, which will set as default
terminal in panel and right-cricked desktop menu, would use xterm. Instead
of using this non-Unicode capable/non-inline inputable (as for my language)
terminal, I'd like to Terminal/xfce4-terminal in my Xfce 4 session.

Reproducible: Always

Created attachment 221 
this patch makes Terminal default if exists

I don't make sure how kind of terminal put here in, basically I'm considering
order priority would be as follows if default wasn't specified in configure,

    Terminal-> GTK2 terminal (GNOME -> KDE if exists) -> X terminal

I'd like to your comment, Xfce 4 folks ;)
Comment 2 Daichi Kawahata 2005-05-04 05:10:30 CEST
Agh, I'm wrong at order. If this order will be acceptable, it should be

    Terminal-> GTK2 terminal (GNOME) -> QT terminal (KDE) -> X terminal

thank you.

I'm not sure using gnome and kde terminals is a good idea, since lot of us use
Xfce because they don't want to use kde and gnome stuff. So I think that using
for  example eterm or aterm, or any other terminal who is independant from the
window manager, would be a better idea.

Alright, I committed the changes to svn, except that I didn't add gnome-terminal
and konsole just to be safe. Thanks.
