Thread: Strange Terminal Problem

  1. #1

    Default Strange Terminal Problem

    I have a strange problem. When I close my terminal, the area where the terminal was I can no longer click. Instead I my arrow pointer in now a text pointer. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

    Thanks!

    1. What operating system? Version? Desktop environment & version?

    2. The problem/symptom you describe: did it begin immediately after
    initial install, or did it come suddenly, some time later?

    *if immediately, these would be useful to know:

    -Was it installed from media downloaded from software.opensuse.org, or
    some other place? Where?

    -Did you md5 or sha1 check the .iso prior to burning the install disk?

    -Did you do this http://tinyurl.com/2ebcf27 before install attempt? (if
    not, please, boot from the install media, do it now and report results)

    -is this a fresh format and install system? or, did you upgrade (keeping
    any partitions from a former install of Linux? which distro/version was
    the former version?)

    *if it worked ok for a while:

    -did this problem begin after a particular update or install?

    -if you use YaST to add a new test user, and then log in as that user do
    you see the same symptom?

    I guess that I need a lot more information before I can try to help. openSUSE version? Is this a fresh install? Or did you upgrade? Did the error show from the beginning or at a later point of time? Did you run the media check before installation?

    Please tell us everything which could help to locate the problem.

    Thanks!
    I'm afraid you're not giving us enough information to help you.
    Which version of openSUSE do you use?
    Do you use KDE or GNOME?
    And which terminal program does this problem occur?

    Best of luck!
