For some reason my terminator terminal stopped working yesterday. This is the error I get when I try to run it:

/usr/share/terminator/terminatorlib/terminator.py:87: Warning: Attempt to add property GnomeProgram::default-icon after class was initialised
self.gnome_program = gnome.init(APP_NAME, APP_VERSION)

I have tried a remove and reinstall but that did nothing for the issue. A solution would be appreciated. Thank you.

  • and you're saying it doesn't start? – Seth Aug 6 '14 at 17:34
  • It does start. The terminal flashes for a split second and then immediately closes. – Archon Aug 6 '14 at 23:20

In my case commenting every line in ~/.config/terminator/config fixed the problem. It seems like newer version cannot understand old config.

It is also weird that even if you do aptitude purge terminator it leaves this config file ;/
