We're using system's terminal provider, so you have to find a way to change it globally :)

I try this :

sudo update-alternatives --config x-terminal-emulator

And set terminator as the default terminal but that do nothing to synapse :)

Have you tried to logout after the change?

Anyway we're using standard libgio-2.0 to open applications with terminal:
So it should work..
