When I try and open the gnome terminal, by clicking the 'terminal' icon in apps, I get a loading and then nothing happens. Is there some way of seeing the background output of trying to open it to try an ddebug it?
So I was able to open xterminal and tried starting the gnome terminal like this:
This resulted in this output, sorry if it is slightly wrong I had to manually copy it since I couldn't work out how to copy and paste in xterminal:
Error constructing proxy for org.gnome.Terminal:/org/gnome/Terminal/Factory0: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.gnome.Terminal: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Process org.gnome.Terminal exited with status 8
So I got it working again by using google fu to find this thread which got me to enter:
locale-gen and reboot which seemed to fix it.
