I have already searched for all the related and numerous posts with regard to the terminal not starting up and tried most of the solutions. But am still stuck with my terminal not opening. I tried to make Python 3.6 my default according to this tutorial and that's where things started going downhill. Now am unable to open the terminal.
So I tried reconfiguring the locales using the following in the non-graphical terminal(Ctrl+ALt+F1).
$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales $ sudo upgrade-locale LANG=en_US.UTF-8 LANGUAGE=en_US
Then upon checking the
/etc/default/locale file, I was able to observe that both of these have been successfully updated in the file.
I also rebooted the machine. But am still not able to start the terminal.
I tried starting the terminal manually on xterm (Alt+F2) using
gnome-terminal and I get the following output/error description.
Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
