Description of problem:
The gnome-terminal's background turned to white from black on open and then the preference window will not open once I clicked Edit->Preferences.
The copy functionality doesn't work either.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[aaron@aaronlu ~]$ rpm -q gnome-terminal
Occurred randomly. Once occurred, the problem won't go after restart.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gnome-terminal
gnome-terminal starts with a white background and preference can not be opened.
gnome-terminal starts with the default black background and all functionality works.
Found a way to reproduce the issue:
1 boot up
2 login to gnome
3 launch gnome-terminal(everything works well now)
4 start vnc session by running cmd: vnc-server
5 close gnome-terminal
6 launch gnome-terminal again, problem occurs.
the cmd in step 4 should be: vncserver and it is provided by tigervnc-server-1.7.0-5.fc24.x86_64

7 run vncserver -kill :1 in this problematic gnome terminal, the terminal will go away with the VNC session as if the terminal belongs to the VNC session instead of the local session
This message is a reminder that Fedora 25 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 25. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 25 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 25 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-12-12. Fedora 25 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
