Cool RedHat8 menu terminal does not work


I have Red Hat 8 going just well. However when I click on Applications:
I get the icons, I click on "System Tools"
I click on "Terminal "
and the panel shows up with an error msg "there is a problem with the command for this terminal: text was empty (or contained only whitespace)"

So what do I do with that? and How do I get the 'terminal" to show up when clicked?
I can get an Xterm when I click on "Actions" 'Run program".
But I want a Terminal window to show up on the desktop when I click the icon "Terminal"
What do I do?

Choose properties and edit so that it launches gnome-terminal

I fix ed it with a new install of RH9

There are no stops with open source or a Red Hat Distro.
Thanks
