[SOLVED Installed Gnome - Gnome Terminal Not Launching

Greetings,

I installed Gnome and the gnome extra packages in a VM. When I boot into gnome, I click on Gnome Terminal and it tries to run, cursor changes to program launching, etc. but never loads. I am not sure how to remedy this situation.

I have tried uninstall gnome-terminal and reinstalling it. It does exist on my drive.

Forgot to mention. This happens each time I install Gnome. Not just on a VM but hardware as well.

Thanks in advance,
Matt

Re: [SOLVED Installed Gnome - Gnome Terminal Not Launching

Try to run gnome-terminal from an interactive shell in another VTE (eg. xterm) and check coredumpctl to generate some useful information about the problem.
Also be sure to try the behavior on a "gnome on xorg" session (iirc gnome-terminal used to have issues under wayland)

Go to settings and check your language. Could be a locale problem had this happen literally yesterday on a fresh install. Just set language to English and retry.

Have you set your hostname correctly?


No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan

My locale has already been set.  I am going to check out what Seth said and see if that works.


Yes, my hostname is setup.  hosts file

127.0.1.1 localhost.localdomain ArchLinux

                                                             

127.0.0.1 localhost

Re: [SOLVED Installed Gnome - Gnome Terminal Not Launching

I also want to look at the differences between Xorg and Wayland. I have never even heard of Wayland. So, I have a bit of reading to do.

I am only running xorg-server but not xorg-xinit. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.

I did install Deepin DE and had no problems. It's just Gnome. I install Xterm and that works fine but I want the Gnome-terminal to run.  I will look into Seth's method and get back.

Does the gnome-terminal tryto start an after a bit of cursor spinning nothing happens?

Is that the only change you made?

Re: [SOLVED Installed Gnome - Gnome Terminal Not Launching

That's was the exact issue I had. Even though I set my locale, Gnome wasnt picking it up so I had to go to language settings in the settings manager and change it to English. After that started right up.

That did the trick. It was that simple. Changing the language inside Gnome.
