How do you edit gnome-terminal startup command?

Someone put gnome-terminal && clear in my startup command box in the preferences panel on linuxmint.

How do I either edit the preferences or find the file with the command in it?

Haha! If you've done this run an invalid command for gnome-terminal...

  • Press Alt + F2
  • type gnome-terminal -e ":)"

You should get an error message at the top of a STATIC (finally) terminal that says Failed to execute child process ":)" (no such file or directory).

Done... (right after you either right click and go to Profiles > Preferenes or click on the Profile Preferences button at the top and edit your preferences so that you can open your terminal correctly)
