Set nautilus-open-terminal to open xfce4-terminal

The nautilus-open-terminal is a nautilus extension that allows to open a terminal emulator on the current opened folder.
When installed in Xfce the extension opens xterm. To modify it so that it opens xfce4-terminal instead, run the following line in a terminal:
$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec /usr/bin/xfce4-terminal


  1. Hi, I have a problem i cant solve.. I prefer nautilus as my file manager but when it is set as the default file manager apps e.g cairo dock's stacks do not open the actual file rather they open its location in nautilus.
    Running gnome-open and gvfs-open give the same results. exo-open however opens the usual way. Setting thunar back as the default file manager solves the problem.
    How can i correct this?

    1. After doing some research, I didn't find a elegant solution. But I came out with this fix/hack: It works...

    2. It works! Thanks
