I have a fresh Saucy installation on my MacBook Pro with a 'little' problem: When I open gnome-terminal, I only see the borders of the window but no window content. Purging the package gnome-terminal and re-installing it had no effect. I'm able to get terminal access via xterm. Here is was lspci listed under VGA:
VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen (rev 09) ... Kernel driver in use: i915
For me that looks correct (?) since OSX also listed Intel HD Graphics as graphics card in use. When starting a unity session I have similar graphical problems with gnome-terminal.
When I launch gnome-terminal from xterm there were no observable error outputs..
Does anybody have an idea or a hint how to proceed?
