Terminal in opensuse


Hi,

Whenever I installed opensuse, I could open the terminal where ever I wanted by a right-click. But in this last installation I am surprised to see that application is missing...

Please guide me how to have it back!!!!

Hi hanamilani,

Did you install the same version of openSUSE? Did you install the same packages like desktop environment as you always do?

So what version of openSUSE are you using now and what version of openSUSE were you using when you were able to get a terminal via right-click?

Are you using GNOME or KDE, or something else for your desktop environment?

openSUSE 12.1 is the first version of openSUSE to ship with GNOME 3. GNOME 3 is very different from GNOME 2 and one of the differences is that you can't get a terminal by right-clicking on the Desktop. Assuming you are using openSUSE 12.1 with GNOME, that may account for the behaviour you're seeing.

You can't always have used openSUSE 11.4.

If you're using openSUSE 11.4 then unless you installed GNOME 3 then you're not using GNOME 3 because openSUSE 11.4 shipped with GNOME 2.

Post the output of these commands

Code:
$ cat /etc/SuSE-release
$ rpm -qi gnome-terminal

@ hanamilani,

arizonagroovejet is right openSuSE 11.4 ships with gnome 2.x not 3. Run the commands he mentioned as that will give us more information about the version you are running on and about terminal package.

When you right click on the Desktop do you get a menu that doesn't have an option for launching a terminal, or do you not get a menu at all?

Is nautilus running?

Code:
$ ps U $USER | grep -i nautilus

Run this command

Code:
$ rpm -qi nautilus-open-terminal
If it says the package isn't installed

Code:
$ sudo zypper in -y nautilus-open-terminal
Log out, log in again.

unless your system clock is wrong. So recent is that date that from the timezone I'm in, Sun 29 Jan 2012 07:57:59 PM is still several hours in the future.

It appears that is the nautilus-open-terminal package for use with GNOME 3. You have gnome-terminal from GNOME 2 which implies you're using GNOME 2 not GNOME 3. So where did you get that nautilus-open-terminal package from?

What repos do you have set up?

Code:
$ zypper lr -u
