How to set alacritty as default terminal?

I’ve been using Alacritty since last year but I still like to use gnome files

Anyone knows how to set it so I can open the directory in Alacritty instead of the default terminal? all I’ve found is the update-alternatives which returns “command not found”

I believe you can open dconf Editor and go to org > gnome > desktop > application > terminal and change gnome-terminal to the terminal of your choice.

You can do the same from command line with

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec cmd_to_open_terminal_of_choice

Just be carefull and be sure you can restore the default.

First check:

Maybe there are better ways.
