Running on Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS. Using XFCE with Nemo as my File Explorer instead of Thunar.

Related to #19 (comment)

Running x-terminal-emulator in console opens up Terminix as it should.

Issue happens with both xfwm4 and Compix (doesn't really seem relevant).

I can provide any other info.

This is because (I think) Nemo is currently only configured to launch the command gnome-terminal, which, of course, is not included by default in Xubuntu, the easiest workaround for now is the following command:
sudo apt-get install gnome-terminal -y

Thanks, it works but it doesn't use my preferred terminal (Terminix), it just opens Terminal.

I'll look around and see if I can fix it later.

Nemo uses Cinnamon's default terminal stored the gsettings key "org.cinnamon.desktop.default-applications.terminal" "exec".

To change it to Terminix without going through the Cinnamon settings program, use
gsettings set org.cinnamon.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec 'terminix'

Thank you so much, it worked! I found a similar solution online, same thing but it was for gnome so it didn't work.

Maybe using an OS variable like TERMINAL would be better. If it doesn't exists then fall back to the gnome settings.
