Adding keyboard shortcut for Terminal on default
Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

There are patches for Ubuntu that exist in gnome-control-center that allow setting a keyboard shortcut for the Terminal to open. I would like to have Ctrl-Alt-T on Solus as default for launching gnome-terminal.

EDIT: I use Solus Budgie. It can also be implemented in Gnome. Mate has mate-terminal, the upcoming KDE version could have it too.

Hi!
Go to gnome-control-center to the keyboard section. Now scroll all the way down and hit the plus button. You can put any name in "Open the default terminal", set the command to x-terminal-emulator and set your shortcut.
I can't put it the change into the defaults but at least I can tell you how to do it on your machine.

As mentioned by @Gaming4LifeDE, this is something you can set via Keyboard settings in GNOME Control Center.

@JoshStrobl This is true, but OP asked for it to be integrated by default, which would make sense, but maybe not for Budgie 10 since I think Budgie 11 would need a new control center anyways.
