gnome-terminal missing


I have installed some RPM's for GNOME on RHEL 6.4 however for various reasons, I forgot to "yum groupinstall desktop" and now this system does'nt have internet access.

The issue is that I cannot see the Terminal from under Applications/System Tools.

How can I manually add this back into the GNOME system menu ? Which file do I need to edit.

Also Alt-F2 does not work, so I cannot run gnome-terminal manually. All I can do is to remotely login, export the DISPLAY to the console, and run xterm or gnome-terminal.

Thanks

You can open the gnome terminal using command line, as:
Code:
~$ gnome-terminal &
If it doesn't work, then set the DISPLAY variable first, then try again.

If you can't get terminal Try Ctrl+Alt+F1, or boot into rescue mode to start network & install packages.

Come on, Oakland, Ctrl+Alt+F1 is NOT a terminal, it is a console.

Yes you are correct but in order for OP to install or edit he/she must be able to run commands. Also alacarte is not installed by default in RHEL so OP must install from the console.
Btw: I never said it was a terminal.

Well, you are correct. No harm, no foul?
