[xubuntu-users] Terminal problem PLUS Celtx install problem

Hi,
could you try to install a different terminal emulator?
Open Synaptic->Search->"xterm" -> install.
After this, press "Alt + F2" and type xterm in the "run application" window
that will appear.
This would not be a solution to your problem, but it could give you a
Terminal :-)

Also: have you tried to reinstall "xfce4-terminal"? This might help as well.
BTW: this is not you doing something wrong. It sounds more like a graphics
driver problem. But it's strange that it only appears when opening a
terminal. So, if reinstall or xterm does not help: Could you tell us
something about your graphics card and the driver that is used and if you
have compositing enabled in the windowmanager tweaks?

Cheers,
Stefan
