Question New install Xubuntu 14.04 trying to replace default terminal with Terminator error:Failed to execute default Terminal Emulator


I had everything working with Xubuntu 12.04 but with a new harddrive I installed Xubuntu 14.04. Now I am stuck with a number of default tools I do not like and I want to replace them with Terminator and EOG and Gedit. I have spent a number of days with google and none of the fixes seem to work. Somewhere in the OS defaults there is a config file that keeps defaulting any launcher I create to looking for the "Terminal Emulator" not Terminator so I cannot get programs like Alpine, Htop or Terminator to open from a menu item or a desktop launcher.

With gnome commander I have not been able to set the default editor to be gedit nor the default viewer to be eog (eye of gnome).
Im stuck with Ristretto when I use Gnome-commander and despite setting things in the defaults I get an error trying to display png files. This is the error:
"No default application found for the MIME type image/x-apple-ios-png.
Open the "File types and programs" page in the Control Center to add one"

Hi...

Welcome to the forum

I'm not sure of all the instructions you've seen but does this one help?

Regards...
