gnome-terminal fails to start , update yesterday installed gnome-terminal-data 2.30.1-1ubuntu1 and removed gnome-terminal 2.29.6-0ubuntu5 but gnome-terminal2.30.1 is not in reps yet.
bug # 586303
Note! root terminal from applications>system tools still works .

wonder why "gnome-terminal" is kept back by aptitude...?
May 27th, 2010, 01:59 PM
looks like its not built yet , synaptic shows the latest version as 2.29.6 and that requires gnome-terminal-dat <2.30 .

hm, i've not this problem

it happened yesterday , the same update took out ubuntu-desktop , probably a self inflicted wound , I use synaptic for updates and that time I didn't pay attention to the removes . Still why did they add gnome-terminal-data to the repos before gnome-terminal itself was ready ?

Not self inflicted...
Still why did they add gnome-terminal-data to the repos before gnome-terminal itself was ready ?
Cause the process is automated..
Just reinstall the previous g-t-date pkg and it should clear the situation...
sudo aptitude install gnome-terminal-data=2.29.6-0ubuntu5
Before yelling at me, cause gnome-terminal doesn't work,
Alt+F2 -> xterm

gnome-terminal-data 2.29.6 is not available , not in synaptic and not in my apt cache . I suppose I could change back to the lucid repos and get it there .but I can wait , as long as I have the root terminal I'll get by . And I will install K3B soon and that will drag in the KDE base so I can install yakuake .

Or just download the correct version here...?
and install via dpkg

Or just upgrade fully, the correct pkg has just been uploaded to repos and it's been synced.
