This is the first time I post a question on these forums and I'm sure there must be someone here that can help me.
My problem is as follows: I can't start gnome-terminal from the Applications->Accesories menu or from the Alt+F2 application launcher. I get a "Starting Terminal" in the task-bar that disappears after a few seconds and no terminal. I'm pretty sure there is something I did, but I can't really figure out what it is.
The things I've tried so far:
1. I used synaptic to remove and reinstall gnome-terminal. That didn't work
2. Started Xterm and tried to run "gnome-terminal". This is where it gets weird for me:
a. running the command as normal user I get a "Floating point exception" error and obviosly no terminal
b. when I do "sudo gnome-terminal" and enter the root password I get, as expected, a root terminal. I could live with that, but it's not ideal.
So if anyone can help me figure this one out, I would really appreciate it. Thanks
