I am getting the following message on terminal start

-bash: /home/abhineel/.rvm/scripts/rvm: No such file or directory
  • I'm no expert on terminal, but it sounds to me as though you aren't opening terminal, strictly speaking, but a script which attempts to open a terminal with a particular set of commands. What happens if you press Ctrl-Alt-T ? If you get a terminal window that works, and if you are satisfied with that, I recommend you use that instead of that script. – gyropyge Nov 18 '14 at 5:31

Your "terminal start" is trying to execute /home/abhineel/.rvm/scripts/rvm, and either /home/abhineel/.rvm/scripts/rvm does not exist, or is not available to whatever user you're running as. /home/abhineel/.rvm/scripts/rvm is being called from your ~/.bashrc, or other startup files (read man bash about startup files). Alternatively, /home/abhineel/.rvm/scripts/rvm does exist, but cannot find a file/directory it wants.
