Change Nemo Open in terminal on KDE

I am using The KDE Plasma desktop and Nemo file manager. I want to open Konsole when I use the context menu Open in Terminal, but it opens Gnome Terminal (Konsole is my default terminal)

I have seen lots of postings about using gsettings with Gnome, Cinnamon and Mate to make this change. I understand that KDE uses kwriteconfig

Can anyone guide me to the settings I need to make this change?

Hi @psionman,

I don’t know how to do it with the terminal, but it can easily be set in in the GUI:

Just go to the Launcher, open System Settings, go to PersonalisationApplicationsDefault Applications and set in under File Manager.

Obviously, Apply the settings and Exit.

thanks. That sets the default app. I have already done that. I want it to open Konsole when I right-click in Nemo and choose “Open in Terminal”


gsettings set org.cinnamon.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec konsole


brilliant - that does it
