    Terminal not working, no text?

    I am just starting out on ubuntu, and want to install Irssi, and need the command prompt. When I open it, I get a window, but no place to type in. For an image, please go here :

    a terminal window does not need to be the size of the screen. As there is normally on a few characters on a single line at the bottom on the window it could be that the command prompt is below the bottom of the screen.

    To get a terminal command to put its output into a file use this format
    {terminal command} > {filename}
