LXDE - setting the default terminal
LXDE is a terrific light-weight desktop for Fedora Linux (or any distro that offers it). The default terminal for PCmanFM, the default file manager, is not set during installation of Fedora LXDE. This post describes how to set the default terminal for using the F4 key function in PCmanFM.
The F4 key function allows the user to open a terminal session in the currently viewed directory (folder). It can be faster to navigate to a desired directory or file using PCmanFM than typing long path lists in the terminal window.
To set PCmanFM's default terminal do the following:
1) Start PCmanFM - the icon is near the Fedora menu button on the task bar.
2) From the menu select Edit -> Preferences.
3) Click on the Advanced tab to bring it forward.
4) In the text box titled Terminal Emulator, type in this: lxterminal -e %s
5) Click the Close button, and you are done!
To be fair, the Advanced tab does show an example using xterm. So now you know how to set it for lxterminal too.
