    Default Cannot start GnomeTerminal

    Hi, could you please help? I have 64bit system and suse 11.1 + Gnome.

    Got the following error on trying to open gnome terminal from terminal
    gnome-terminal: symbol lookup error: gnome-terminal: undefined symbol: vte_terminal_cursor_shape_get_type.

    +Some times I see problems with GTK2 themes:

    /usr/share/themes/Synchronicity/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:46: Clearlooks configuration option "menuitemstyle" is not supported and will be ignored.
    /usr/share/themes/Synchronicity/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:47: Clearlooks configuration option "listviewitemstyle" is not supported and will be ignored.
    /usr/share/themes/Synchronicity/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:48: Clearlooks configuration option "progressbarstyle" is not supported and will be ignored.
    /usr/share/themes/Synchronicity/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:46: Clearlooks configuration option "menuitemstyle" is not supported and will be ignored.
    /usr/share/themes/Synchronicity/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:47: Clearlooks configuration option "listviewitemstyle" is not supported and will be ignored.
    /usr/share/themes/Synchronicity/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:48: Clearlooks configuration option "progressbarstyle" is not supported and will be ignored.

    +Compiz does not start after reboot even after setting compiz as default windows manager.

    Is these problems are about GTK? How to fix it. I got the latest version of it.
    Thank you!

    Default Re: Cannot start GnomeTerminal

    My guess it's related to desktop settings / effects / themes

    What happens if you try a new .gnome
    (Is that what it is in gnome? I'm kde and all our settings are in .kde)
    Just rename current to .gnome_old
    You will have to do it from outside X

    eg:
    Code:
    mv /home/username*/.gnome .gnome_old
    An alternative is just to create a new user account and see if that works.

    Hi, thank you for response!
    Yeah, it is Gnome problem, I did not see similar issue using KDE. I cannot see the file you mentioned. I created a new user but he has the same issue.
