[SOLVED] Terminal programs not working right
Right now, I'm trying to help my sister, who runs Ubuntu. (She's installed Xfce because Unity just doesn't work when you have Parkinson's, but it's not Xubuntu.) I found some instructions on how to install Google Earth, but they require copying things into a terminal, something she always finds daunting. (I'm an old-school CLI hack; terminals don't scare me.) However, if she opens a terminal from the button on the panel, there's no prompt and Paste doesn't work. Her Applications menu has both Uterm and Xterm. Neither of them has a menu bar, and right-click does nothing, making Paste impractical. And, as the commands are rather complex, simply re-typing them isn't exactly doing things the easy way. If anybody knows how to get the terminals to work, or at least how to find out why they don't, we'd both appreciate it.

Any advice in this post is worth exactly what you paid for it.
Remember, folks, I don't use Ubuntu, I just support it.
