Whenever I press the shortcut keys Ctrl+Alt+T for LXTerminal, a blank terminal window flashes and disappears.

  • If you have search, you can try out the other terminals by searching terminal. Then you can map the one that works to your shortcut keys (Ctrl+Alt+T) – Dawoodjee Jun 27 '18 at 10:43

I had the same problem. I merely renamed my ~/.config file to .config.bak and then logged out. The resulting creation of the new .config file enabled the use of Ctrl+Alt+t to open the default terminal. Warning however: All configurations that you had previously created will also be eliminated so if you have spent time creating them. You may just want to live with launching the terminal in some other manner such as via the menu or with Run. Your choice.

  • Thanks for the answer. I guess it would be fine to open the terminal window form the taskbar itself rather than creating a new configuration. – SSK Jun 28 '18 at 7:26
  • Of course. You could open it from the menu or Run as well. – Rex Jun 28 '18 at 16:51
