Ubuntu 17.10 (xorg), gnome 3.26.2.

I suddenly began having this problem when I try to run gnome-terminal, I can't figure out what caused this:


main19@system19:~$ gnome-terminal
Error constructing proxy for org.gnome.Terminal:/org/gnome/Terminal/Factory0: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.gnome.Terminal: Timeout was reached
main19@system19:~$

This causes gnome--terminal not to start.

I have tried looking online, everyone says it is a locale problem, here is my locale output:


main19@system19:~$ locale
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LANGUAGE=
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=
main19@system19:~$


I have run out of ideas, if anyone can provide help with this that would be great.
