I was facing a problem with Node.js, so I decided to uninstall npm and node completely and reinstall them. Now I have a black terminal with no text, and I'm not able to type anything either.

I haven't been able to find a solution on the Internet.

I tried to restart my PC, but that wasn't enough so I also uninstalled console trying to install it again. I couldn't reinstall it, so I installed:

  • Qterminal
  • konsole
  • Mate terminal

But all have had the the same problem.

I also tried Ctrl+Alt+F1, but it does nothing but lock my PC.

Any solutions please?
