It already looks for numerous different terminal programs, but none of them are installed by default on Ubuntu 20.

Setting VSLICKXTERM fixes Tools > OS Shell..., but it does not work for project tools / run in X term.  The problem seems to trace to passing the -T argument to set the title in XtermGetCommandPrefix()
