View Full Version : [ubuntu] Multiple programs are launched. Cross-linked?

November 2nd, 2011, 04:01 PM
I have an issue where when I launch gnome-terminal, either from a launcher or from the command line, it launches without a command prompt. Then another program starts, in this case the VirtualBox Manager. :mad: The command prompt does not appear in the original gnome-terminal window until I exit from VirtualBox.

Originally, I thought this might be cross-linked binaries. So I replace both programs, to no avail. :( This problem has persisted thru several Ubuntu releases. I think I first noticed it in 9.04, I'm running 11.10 now.

The problem does not affect other user accounts on the same system. So, it has something to do with my gnome environment, but I don't know where to look. :confused:

Thanks in advance for any help here. :KS
