I3-SENSIBLE-TERMIN(1)		   i3 Manual		 I3-SENSIBLE-TERMIN(1)

NAME
       i3-sensible-terminal - launches $TERMINAL with fallbacks

SYNOPSIS
       i3-sensible-terminal [arguments]

DESCRIPTION
       i3-sensible-terminal is invoked in the i3 default config	to start a
       terminal. This wrapper script is	necessary since	there is no
       distribution-independent	terminal launcher (but for example Debian has
       x-terminal-emulator). Distribution packagers are	responsible for
       shipping	this script in a way which is appropriate for the
       distribution.

       It tries	to start one of	the following (in that order):

       o   $TERMINAL (this is a	non-standard variable)

       o   x-terminal-emulator (only present on	Debian and derivatives)

       o   urxvt

       o   rxvt

       o   termit

       o   terminator

       o   Eterm

       o   aterm

       o   uxterm

       o   xterm

       o   gnome-terminal

       o   roxterm

       o   xfce4-terminal

       o   termite

       o   lxterminal

       o   mate-terminal

       o   terminology

       o   st

       o   qterminal

       o   lilyterm

       o   tilix

       o   terminix

       o   konsole

       o   kitty

       o   guake

       o   tilda

       o   alacritty

       o   hyper

       Please don't complain about the order: If the user has any preference,
       they will have $TERMINAL	set or modified	their i3 configuration file.
