In Linux Mint (Debian-based) how can I edit what the shortcut Ctrl+Alt+t launches?
For example, I would like to issue
gnome-terminal with the
--maximize option, and to have it launch tmux instantly.

$ sudo apt-get install dconf-editor
Navigate to the terminal key
Change the key to the terminal you want
Name=exec => Value=konsole
Remember to install that terminal you want by default first. (Obviously)
sudo apt-get install konsole
You can modify the
/desktop/gnome/applications/terminal/exec key in GConf (using
gconf-editor), which is described as "the default terminal application to use for applications that require a terminal".
Alternatively, I propose a little more flexible solution: if you use Compiz, you can use the
Commands plugin to define keyboard shortcuts for your own commands.
This way, you can keep the default shortcut to launch a windowed terminal, and define an other shortcut for a fullscreen terminal.
(Sidenote: in the Compiz configuration tool, you can change directly the terminal command and shortcut in the
Gnome Compatibility plugin.)
