How to change from mate-terminal to xfce4-terminal

How to change from mate-terminal to xfce4-terminal

Mostly for my own purposes

mateconftool-2 --set /desktop/mate/applications/terminal/exec --type string "xfce4-terminal"

I'm not a big fan of mate terminal, seems to hurt my eyes, like xfce better, so this still makes the "launch terminal" shortcut work, but launch a different terminal.

Probably should switch it to use the debian standard "x-terminal-emulator"
