I've installed Ubuntu 16.04 and everything seems to work fine, except that I cannot start gnome-terminal from Unity launcher or from a shortcut locked to the side panel.
However, gnome-terminal starts fine from Xterm or from right-click>Open Terminal. I can also run gnome-terminal by Alt-F2.
So, this seems to be a problem with Unity?
When pressing on gnome-terminal from Unity launcher or from a shortcut, the gnome-terminal icon just pulsates a bit, after which the shell terminates. I never see the shell itself, just its icon on the sidebar.
Searching for Terminal in Unity launcher, it finds gnome-terminal, but its name is "nlykkei@nlykkei-Ubuntu:~" and not the usual "Terminal".
Also, gnome-terminal doesn't show colors anymore, like green for an executable, etc.
Can someone guide me on how to restore my Unity Terminal? I've already spent 2-3 hours on Google, attempting to solve the problem by configuring locale settings.
