This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Option 1:

Are you able to at least open the terminal application? If so, you should be able to re-open the terminal's preferences and disable the "Run a custom command." What happens if you open the terminal? Do you get an error message?

Option 2:

The simple solution to this problem, would be to reset the terminal application's preferences and profiles. You can do this by pressing CTRL + ALT + F1 ... Once you have done this enter your username and your password at prompt. Then, once you see the shell, enter gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/gnome-terminal (And press enter).
