#StackBounty: #command-line #update-alternatives Make alacritty the default terminal permanently

Bounty: 200

Currently I use alacritty as default terminal emulator. On any given day this is the output of update-alternatives:

$ sudo update-alternatives --config x-terminal-emulator
There are 7 choices for the alternative x-terminal-emulator (providing /usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator).

  Selection    Path                             Priority   Status
------------------------------------------------------------
* 0            /usr/bin/alacritty                70        auto mode
  1            /usr/bin/alacritty                70        manual mode
  2            /usr/bin/gnome-terminal.wrapper   40        manual mode
  3            /usr/bin/koi8rxterm               20        manual mode
  4            /usr/bin/lxterm                   30        manual mode
  5            /usr/bin/uxterm                   20        manual mode
  6            /usr/bin/xterm                    20        manual mode
  7            /usr/local/bin/termite            60        manual mode

Press <enter> to keep the current choice[*], or type selection number:

However, every time I run the updates the priorities in this list are automatically modified and alacritty stops being the default programme (and is removed from auto mode):

$ sudo update-alternatives --config x-terminal-emulator
There are 7 choices for the alternative x-terminal-emulator (providing /usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator).

 ​Selection    Path                             Priority   Status
------------------------------------------------------------
* 0            /usr/local/bin/termite            60        auto mode
 ​1            /usr/bin/alacritty                50        manual mode
 ​2            /usr/bin/gnome-terminal.wrapper   40        manual mode
 ​3            /usr/bin/koi8rxterm               20        manual mode
 ​4            /usr/bin/lxterm                   30        manual mode
 ​5            /usr/bin/uxterm                   20        manual mode
 ​6            /usr/bin/xterm                    20        manual mode
 ​7            /usr/local/bin/termite            60        manual mode

It is possible to reset alacritty as the default terminal emulator with a
command like:

$ sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator x-terminal-emulator /usr/bin/alacritty 70

Until the updates are run and it all gets back to square one. How can I prevent
the alternatives priorities from being modified automatically, setting alacritty permanently as the
default terminal emulator?

Bounty: 100

I have a question to ask, how can I create a symbolic link into the drive’s path from my local directory? In the past, I’ve done it using the OpenDive package, but never tried with gnome’s online accounts. Since my drive it seems mounted in nautilus how can I do something like this?!

P.S. if I have to use OpenDrive to do this what’s the point of using gnome’s online accounts?

Thanks
