I enabled the Embedded terminal plug-in for gedit, but it only appears as in the picture. I can't type anything!

enter image description here

Is there a way to fix this? Or am I missing something?

  • I have same problem did you find a solution? Or is there another editor with terminal? – Betlista Jan 4 '13 at 20:03
  • Unfortunately no. I now use Geany as a text editor and for coding and all that. It has a terminal, and works pretty well. – stupidity Jan 5 '13 at 15:18
  • I had similar problem with geany, but it was easier to fix (askubuntu.com/questions/139539/terminal-in-geany/…). – Betlista Jan 5 '13 at 16:55

I had a similar problem before. The problem turns out to be the color of the words in this embedded terminal is white, so you can't see them. Follow this linkMake gedit embedded terminal colours the same as the default terminal, you could change the color to be normal black.
