Turning SELinux off will help determine if the issue is indeed with SELinux or something else.

comment Gnome terminal fails to start
He is suggesting launching gnome-terminal, or xterm, or some other terminal, and then launch gnome-terminal from the command line of the parent terminal. If and when gnome-terminal fails, you should have some debug output in the parent terminal window.

comment Gnome terminal fails to start
I'm not sure this is SELinux as it does not happen every time you launch gnome-terminal. One way to be sure is to turn off SELinux (setenforce Permissive) and continue to launch gnome-terminal until it does/does not happen again. To persistently turn off SELinux between reboots, append "enforcing=0" to your kernel boot line in grub.

comment Creating links to websites
It's difficult to understand what's being asked here. @Fizz, do you mean a shortcut or launcher that launches a browser and opens a website when it is clicked? If so, what desktop are you using? Please edit and add clarification to your question.

comment Refreshing less on the fly
Not sure exactly what you are trying to accomplish, but you realize that less already has a tail mode that refreshes the end of the file? less -F (or invoke with F if already in a less session).

comment How does “man” restore the screen when I quit the program?
vim honors the altscreen in your terminal emulator. You could add something like this to your ~/.vimrc - "set t_ti= t_te=" to change the terminal capabilities vim uses.
