Terminology as terminal emulator

I was using E16 in the beginning of 21st century, waiting for E17 to come along…

The E17 project has some nice stuff going on, one of them being the terminal emulator (on steroids) Terminology.

How to install it, and make it the default alternative for x-terminal-emulator:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:enlightenment-git/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install terminology
sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator x-terminal-emulator /usr/bin/terminology 50
sudo dpkg-divert --local --rename --add /usr/bin/gnome-terminal
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/terminology /usr/bin/gnome-terminal

I haven’t found any way to change which terminal emulator is launched when right clicking on the desktop and choosing ‘Open Terminal’.

You can open System Settings, Keyboard, Shortcuts, Custom Shortcuts and add a new one binding it to ctrl + alt + t:

Name: Open Terminology
Command: terminology
