When i start from dmenu a program in terminal it starts in an ugly terminal, i presume it’s urxwt. I checked a bit and i found this, in /sbin/demenu_recency:
# Originally based on code by Dieter Plaetinck.
# Pretty much re-written by Mina Nagy (mnzaki)
# Edited by Chrysostomus to create/source .dmenurc
if ! [ -f "$HOME/.dmenurc" ]; then
cp /usr/share/dmenu/dmenurc $HOME/.dmenurc
if [ -z "$TERMINAL_CMD" ]; then
if [ "$(which terminal)" ]; then
TERMINAL_CMD="terminal -e" <-- here!
elif [ "$(which urxvt)" ]; then
Now, i can change the settings easily in ~/.dmenurc, but i’d like to understand where the terminal in the first line is set. My ~.profile ist different and the gui settings as well.
