Terminal does not work [solved]

Postby seeley on Sun Sep 30, 2012 11:44 am

Hi!
After having created a live USB with PartedMagic/ Unetbootin I installed LMDE 201204 64 bit. DESKTOP: Cinnamon.
After the latest Update (I followed all hints) neither Terminal nor Root Terminal work: no cursor (to type a command) appears.
Any idea?

Edit:
Changing session: On MATE no problem with Terminal.

Hi!
No success with:
1. removing and reinstalling terminal,
2. formatting root and home partitions, fresh installation (another language).

Edit:
Same problem with kernel 3.2.0.3 and 3.2.0.2

I know ditto-heads aren't a lot of use - but, Ditto!

My terminals have no cursor, nothing that I type shows on the terminal screen, and typing commands seem to have no result. su enter does not cause the terminal to ask for a password, nor does sudo -s Other commands seem to have no effect at all. Terminals are apparently dead!



EDIT: I've just finished installing the Mate desktop. Terminals work as expected on Mate! I was on the Classic desktop when the terminals weren't working. I should probably check the Cinnamon desktop - maybe I will later!

in cinnamon can you see if this >> viewtopic.php?f=198&t=113073#p631249 works and fixes the terminal
also make sure mint-themes is installed

Hi!
Thank you, zerozero!
Mint-themes is installed. But I can't use the Cinnamon terminal, and I don't know what to do.

does this:

has any effect on cinnamon's terminal?

Hi zerozero!
Thank you very much - problem solved.
My mistake was, that I didn't recognize to choose Terminal / EDIT!
[And I had chosen another language.]
