All the sudden my gnome-terminal will not open. This all happened after I installed the termite terminal (here) and was trying to change the default term that opens with Ctrl-Alt-T:
sudo update-alternatives --config x-terminal-emulator
However, I noticed something. The last time I ran this command there were 2 entries for gnome-terminal (like tilix). Now there's only the one:
0 /usr/local/bin/termite 60 auto mode 1 /usr/bin/gnome-terminal.wrapper 40 manual mode 2 /usr/bin/tilix 30 manual mode 3 /usr/bin/tilix.wrapper 30 manual mode 4 /usr/bin/urxvt 20 manual mode *5 /usr/local/bin/termite 60 manual mode
And here is the error message I get when trying to run gnome-terminal:
Error constructing proxy for org.gnome.Terminal:/org/gnome/Terminal/Factory0: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.gnome.Terminal: Timeout was reached
I'm really at a loss. I've tried some of the solutions involving locale-gen but to no avail. I've reinstalled gnome-terminal and rebooted, tried different acounts, etc.
