TLDR: I want to run Midnight Commander as default File manager, I need to know how to change default terminal for
Terminal=true from xterm to anything else. pantheon-terminal seems to be not suitable.
So now I've set midnight commander as my default File manager but it keeps opening in xterm. I cannot find a way to change it to elementary terminal emulator anywhere.
I've loosely rgrep'd
/usr/share directory but could not find anything relevant, same for
update-alternatives lists default terminal emulator as
io.elementary.terminal so the problem shouldn't be there.
Also when I run
io.elementary.terminal --new-window --execute=mc it opens new window AND new tab (two tabs total: one with shell, other with
mc). Besides that I cannot be sure how it handles spaces in path names to add the command directly to the
Exec= line. Should I write elementary terminal off completely?
When the elementary terminal starts like that it reports its height as 1 row, because of that mc quits and reports that it does not support that height. It seems that whatever I do it always starts a shell.
