How to redefine custom shortcut to open Terminal once Terminator was installed?
For Ubuntu Desktop 22.04, with the ctrl + alt + t shortcut is opened the default terminal available.
Terminator was installed and with the same shorcut now
Terminator is opened instead. I did do a research in
Preferences for each one and does not exist a shortcut to define how to open each one. Only their respective internal shortcuts.

How to Fix this?
In your keyboard settings in the shortcuts you might see something like
exo-open --launch TerminalEmulator or
Launch terminal being assigned to Ctrl+Alt+T.
So, you will need to update the
x-terminal-emulator default. You can do it by running
sudo update-alternatives --config x-terminal-emulator from the current terminal:
terrance@terrance-ubuntu:~$ sudo update-alternatives --config x-terminal-emulator There are 7 choices for the alternative x-terminal-emulator (providing /usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator).
