$ dlocate exo-open
xfce4-terminal: /usr/share/Terminal/apps/exo-open-browser.desktop
xfce4-terminal: /usr/share/Terminal/apps/exo-open-mailer.desktop
libexo-0.3-0: /usr/share/man/man1/exo-open.1.gz
libexo-0.3-0: /usr/bin/exo-open

Do you have libexo-0.3-0  installed? "exo-open" appears to be the xfce4
version of "gnome-open" - for example,

exo-open http://google.com

opens the URL in your browser.

I can't see why a terminal app should complain about it not being there :)
... but perhaps xfterm4 requires its library?
