Why can't I open the gnome-terminal (version 3.18.3-1ubuntu1 on Ubuntu 16.04) any more?

enter image description here

The error message is this:

Error creating terminal:

  • Please check if there are still runnung processes of gnome-terminal. If so kill them and then try to start it again. – dufte May 31 '16 at 10:04
  • Please tell us the version of your gnome-terminal (output of: `apt-cache policy gnome-terminal'). Paste the information and your Ubuntu version in the original post. – dufte May 31 '16 at 10:06
  • No, I have reboot many times. – JulianLai May 31 '16 at 10:08
  • So you can open a new gnome-terminal window using the Unity launcher/Dash, but you can't start a new instance from inside the terminal, right? – Byte Commander May 31 '16 at 10:24
