Change the default terminal

Change which terminal Regolith loads by default.

The default terminal that ships with Regolith, st-term, is a minimal terminal application. There are others that offer more features. To update Regolith to use your (already installed) terminal of choice, we just need to use update-alternatives. In this example we'll use gnome-terminal but substitute your term command as needed.

  1. Run update-alternatives --config x-terminal-emulator to see all available terminals installed on your system.
  2. Select the terminal you prefer.
