When I run gnome-terminal I get following error:

GLib-GIO-ERROR **: No GSettings schemas are installed on the system
Trace/BPT trap

Anyone has idea what is missing? where can I find it.

In 20.04, there are two other terminal apps. Open dash and type "term", you will get UXTerm and XTerm apps. Check if any of those are working..? – Prahlad Yeri Mar 12 '13 at 3:28

Just reinstall gsettings-desktop-schemas:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall gsettings-desktop-schemas
