How to set Terminator as the default terminal emulator

Running following commands will change the default terminal emulator to Terminator [1].
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec /usr/bin/terminator
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec-arg "-x"
This can be easily done from dconf Editor as well.


After doing this, Ctrl+Alt+T and as well as "Open in Terminal" Nautilus script will open the Terminator rather than the normal Terminal.
