I have a administrator account in which if i open the terminal, it like shows up for a fraction of a second and then vanishes. i tried with guest and other user accounts (created from this one). I was able to open terminal. What is the problem? How to open terminal properly from my main account? I am not even able to do anything on the screen that comes on Ctrl+Alt+F1. Over there, i put my login id and then password then suddenly some text comes there and the next second, vanishes. Asking me to login again
Press CTRL+ALT+F1 and login there with your name and password and then type below command
then try again with relogin/restart.
Hmmm. Check the file permissions of new user ( you are logged in as new-set user ! ) for the files of terminal. I assume you have bash as terminal set ? So do find out, where bash is located:
When there is output like /usr/bin/bash - then do:
Only in case the output at beginning of line is DIFFERENT than this here: -rwxr-xr-x
... then you should do:
The directories /usr and /usr/bin should be in permission-state of chmod 755 too.
Hope this helps.
