My Ubuntu htop command does not display anything, like this:

htop displays nothing

Is there any problem with this command? Thanks a lot!

  • Did you try restarting? – NerdOfLinux Aug 18 '17 at 2:25
  • Does top works?? – noone Aug 18 '17 at 2:27
  • To check if it's a display problem, try redirecting output into a file, htop > test.dat. Does that file contain data? If yes, you have a display problem. – richbl Aug 18 '17 at 2:38
  • I did restart the computer, and the top command works fine. However, htop doesn't work. And I use htop>test.dat to redirecting output into a file,but I still got little information, I even tried to reinstall htop, but still cannot fix the problem. So I am still confused.... – sperfu Aug 19 '17 at 2:56
