Post Change Default terminal.

Hello all.
I use fedora 16.
How can I change the default Terminal? I want to use Persian characters in Terminal and I install "Mlterm" but How can I change it to default terminal and all of my system use it?

I don't quite understand what you mean by "default Terminal"
Can you give us an example of what you expect to happen and what actually does happen?

It's always a good idea to check if a package you want to install is available in the distro's repositories before getting from an outside source. Just my opinion of course.

I saw this link on changing the default terminal in fedora 16
How do I change the default terminal in Gnome3 F16?

The terminal in question in the article is aterm, you'll just substitute it with mlterm.

PS: Also, check the README or INSTALL files from the source package of mlterm, it may have that information on making it the default terminal and/or check the manpage of mlterm after the installation as well.

Good luck

Fedora 16 reached end-of-life in February 2013 and is no longer supported; it will not receive any security updates. You may want to move to a more recent version.
