What is the command line you are using ? Is it a terminal?Konsole or Gnome-terminal or xterm or something like that

What is the distro you are using?

What error are you getting?

What desktop are you using?

If you are using KDE try this

Press Alt+F2

Type
konsole

See if the above terminal comes up.If it does
From here type
xterm


Terminal is not the name of the application.
The console will have a name like konsole or xterm or gnome-terminal or xvt etc..

You can check this by doing a Right Click on it and checking for properties.


If you are finding a problem with one terminal you can always use the other terminals till you fix the issue.

Thank you very much for your concern at least
i got all your information right,i am using gnome-terminal,
i got into the run application and i try to log in to
the gnome teminal from the konsole, i only come up with a
flash of the gnome-terminal which never stay.
But at least i can still use the konsole for the main time.
Thank you very much.

Cool.

One thing.
Dont run Konsole from Gnome.
It will take a lot of resources [because its a kde application and needs the kde basic libraries and processes to be loaded before it can run]


For troubleshooting gnome-terminal try this

Go to your home directory
cd ~

And create a temp directory say t/ there

Move all the .gnome* directories into the t/ directory and try gnome-terminal again.
This should do the trick.

If everything is proper , you can safely delete t/ directory.

cd ~
mv .gnome* t/


ls -al


The t/ directory must be available in home directory of user.
