Change terminal for Thunar: 'Open Terminal Here' custom action....


I would like to use sakura instead of xfce4-terminal when using Thunar's 'Custom Action' Open Terminal Here sample (Thunar 1.0.2). The syntax given for this sample is:

Code:
exo-open --working-directory %f --launch TerminalEmulator
Simply substituting 'TerminalEmulator' with '/usr/bin/sakura' does not work and most other exotic substitutions I have tried have also failed. Any suggestions?

Not *exactly* what you may want, but if you issue the command exo-preferred-applications, you'll get a dialog where you can configure which terminal is called with exo-open.

edit as per your original request, rather than substituting TerminalEmulator with /usr/bin/sakura, replace the whole command (exo etc...) with /usr/bin/sakura


cheers,
