Set default terminal in gnome

Hello. I am using GNOME 3 on Fedora.
There’s a way for changing the default terminal in other desktops and ubuntu, but there’s no way for gnome on fedora.
This code didn’t worked:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec kitty

(change shell) should do the job.

chsh -s $(which fish)

Too bad I am not answering your question. I just realized you want to change the terminal emulator, not the shell…
To be honest, I don’t understand what it means to change the default terminal, in Gnome the user starts up the terminal, so you decide which one you fire up.

Maybe this helps:


Thank you. It was helpful. I should ask Gnome developers.
Default Terminal used when you click ‘Open in Terminal’ in right click menu of a folder or an executable, also it opens when you run a .desktop file with ‘Term=yes’
