[Solved] Terminal not opening – Ubuntu
I was facing this problem on my PC yesterday. I had to use Xterm instead of Gnome Terminal. I searched a lot on Internet and finally got a solution.
Error details are pasted below:
Unable to access the Terminal session.
Accessed Xterm and executed the following command to access the Gnome Terminal manually.
I got the following error while doing so:
[email protected]:~# gnome-terminal (process:2689): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library. Using the fallback 'C' locale. 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 9
I tried to update the Gnome Terminal. However, that didn’t work. Finally I had to purge “locale-gen” on the system to fix the problem with Gnome Terminal.
Executed the following command:
[email protected]:~# locale-gen --purge Generating locales (this might take a while)... en_AG.UTF-8... done en_AU.UTF-8... done en_BW.UTF-8... done en_CA.UTF-8... done en_DK.UTF-8... done en_GB.UTF-8... done en_HK.UTF-8... done en_IE.UTF-8... done en_IN.UTF-8... done en_NG.UTF-8... done en_NZ.UTF-8... done en_PH.UTF-8... done en_SG.UTF-8... done en_US.UTF-8... done en_ZA.UTF-8... done en_ZM.UTF-8... done en_ZW.UTF-8... done Generation complete.
Yup, try to access the Gnome Terminal now!
Let me know if you have any questions.
