Gnome terminal not opening from context menu.

Post by mfrahman » Sat Feb 16, 2019 2:31 am

Hello guys,
I am comparatively new in Linux and I installed Linux mint latest version few days back. Everything was running perfectly and today I installed Hyper Terminal from "https://hyper.is/". I have used it before on Windows 10. After using few moments, I decided to use the Gnome terminal which comes by default and thus I uninstalled Hyper terminal. From then, Gnome terminal not opening in any folder using context menu(right click->Open in terminal), not even on Desktop. Please note that, I have installed some plugins with Hyper terminal and there was a pop up like thing to add Hyper CLI to path. So I clicked that.

Please help me out what to do. Thanks

"A terminal built on web technologies." What madness is this. Are we going to need ad blockers in our terminal? :lol:

I can't reproduce your issue after installing, running and then uninstalling hyper. Some stuff probably still left in your home directory you can remove:
rm -rvf ~/.hyper.js ~/.hyper_plugins ~/.config/Hyper

You could try running this to see if it will help gnome-terminal:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure gnome-terminal

If that doesn't help check your path. What does this command say:
echo $PATH
If you see something related to hyper in that, edit your ~/.profile file probably to remove the adding of that to the PATH there.
