Yep - slight problem with geany.

In the meantime choose the Edit | Properties menu item and choose tools on the left tab bar.
For terminal change xterm to be x-terminal-emulator

This will then use the default terminal emulator you have installed, and if you change it using update-alternatives it will still use your preferred terminal emulator.

Alternatively just install xterm
