Bug Description

When I try to launch a ssh session in synaptic, nothing is started and I get the following output if i started synapse from a terminal:

[14:52:03.507548 GLib-GIO-Warning] couldn't find a terminal, falling back to xterm
[14:52:03.512454 Warning] ssh-plugin.vala:189: Kindprozess »xterm« konnte nicht ausgeführt werden (Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden)

So synapse fails to get the terminal configured in the system preferences, falls back to xterm (which is not installed) and fails finding it.

I am running a minimal installation of XFCE (with the default terminal application replaced by roxterm) on archlinux. I did configure that change in the XFCE settings and starting a terminal explicitly by typing "Terminal" works fine.

This is old but still here, only workaround found
1- making a symlink
2 - making a bash script wrapper to add stuff you want (nicer)
for var in "$@";do
    arg="$arg $var"
terminator --new-tab $arg
