"Improved Kuake-like behavior in Openbox" section should have its own page

I was thinking of refactoring the urxvt page to have 'Tips and tricks' for non Perl extensions, and create a new section 'Perl extensions'. While I was thinking which should go first in the doc order I noticed that "Improved Kuake..." is like a page within a page. It adds a lot of content to what would be a compact 'Tips and tricks' section, once the Perl exts are moved out.

"Using urxvt with Nautilus "Open in Terminal"

I use Openbox but figured this information is most relevant to rxvt-unicode and so might like to be included on the wiki page. I found that the gnome-terminal package opens xterm by default. This thread in the forums provides a solution.

Install gnome-vfs and gconf-editor and edit the config using gconf-editor

pacman -S gnome-vfs gconf-editor

As normal user run:

gconf-editor

Drill down to desktop/gnome/applications/terminal/ and alter the values to:

exec urxvt
exec_arg -e

I removed gnome-vfs (as its deprecated) afterward without any issues as all I needed was the keys created in gconf-editor. I suppose you might be able to manually create the key as an alternative. --James_Robertson 14:29, 27 February 2011 (AEDT)
