I have some scripts in order to compress videos with different profiles. Tried to make it work but first obstacle was to find that when you create a launcher to run in terminal, mate asks for xterm. Well, I found two ways of solving. Firs to install xterm and continue. Second, move to /usr/bin and link mate-terminal to xterm (ln -s mate-terminal xterm)
But now it comes the second part. if I use the xterm solution if I drag and drop a video file, everything goes as expected. But if I use the mate-terminal solution drag and drop is not accepted and the program is run as if nothing were dropped.
After some tries I found the best solution: "sudo ln -s /usr/bin/mate-terminal /usr/bin/gnome-terminal"
Everything now back to normal.
