[Bug 1873428] Re: Launching apps with Terminal=true does not work / refers to xterm


Ok - you are referring to 20.04.  The default appmenu is the grid/list
view menu - not the classic budgie desktop menu.

The Alt+F2 pop-up is from budgie-desktop.

Your issue is this: https://github.com/elementary/applications-

Its a GLIB issue - with no real resolution.  Adding xterm is a
workaround, but its not something we will be doing out of the box since
having multiple terminal's in the menu is confusing.

We could in theory hard-code something for UB's tilix terminal for the
menu but that will break other distros.

I'll add the issue to the 20.04 release notes but there isn't anything
we can readily do here.
