On the net I've found the fix it to run:
gconftool-2 --type=string --set "/desktop/gnome/applications/terminal/exec" "gnome-terminal"
I am not sure if this is because of gconf/dconf changes
The fix mentioned above works for me, 10x.
I had the same problem on F16 release. The workaround was successful.
The problem here might be that the default value for this key is stored in
which belongs to libgnome.
Is libgnome installed on your system ?
That might be it. Libgnome is not included by default from a livecd install?
I had this problem and didn't have libgnome installed. Problem solved after an install of libgnome.
Had the same problem - installing libgnome did not help, but the workaround did
Had the same problem. I tried setting the /desktop/gnome/applications/terminal/exec gconf value, but that didn't fix it. Installing libgnome did fix it.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '16'.
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 prior to Fedora 16's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 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 to click on
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.
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.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
