How can I switch from gnome terminal to gnome console?

Hi! Recently, Gnome released a new terminal called Gnome Console, and I am really impressed with its interface. I would like to switch from gnome-terminal to Gnome Console. Would anyone be able to help me do it? Thanks

With glib2 2.76.0 (currently only available in the Manjaro testing & unstable branches, you can now set the default terminal in ~/.config/xdg-terminals.list. The name of the desktop file is used; i.e.,

GNOME Terminal: org.gnome.Terminal.desktop
GNOME Console: org.gnome.Console.desktop
Tilix: com.gexperts.Tilix.desktop

In the meantime on the stable branch, you can try setting it with gsettings:

Query the current setting:

gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec

Which should return: 'gnome-terminal'

Set the default to GNOME Console:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec 'kgx'

Query again and it now should return 'kgx'
