    Gnome Terminal Spins - Won't Launch (Solved)

    Leaving this here in case it helps someone else or most likely when I forget how I fixed it and need it again.

    In the event you try to open gnome-terminal (the GUI terminal) after a fresh install and you just get a spinning wheel and then the app closes.

    ctrl-shift F3
    Login to console
    apt-get update
    apt-get install terminator
    ctrl-shift F1
    Open icon at bottom of launcher with 9 gray dots
    Find Terminator and open
    local-gen
    localectl set-locale LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
    shutdown -r now
    Should work now
    Use Terminator anyway because it works better and you've already installed it

    I totally agree. One Terminal to serve them all. Works great for the Aircrack-ng Suite.
