    Hey,
    Whenever I open terminal in my account on the mac, only the "x" button on the top left corner of terminal shows up. I can't enlarge the window, or change the settings or anything because it won't allow me to do so. However, when I go onto a different account and start up terminal, it works perfectly fine. Does anyone know what the problem might be?

    - Thanks in advance!

    Spotlight the file com.apple.terminal.plist and delete it while Terminal is *not* running, from the account in which it *does not* work. Then try running Terminal again.

    I deleted the file of "com.apple.terminal.plist" while terminal was not running from my account, then afterwards, I tried running the program again... it didn't work :( Any other ideas ? :p

    Yes.. you disabled a font that the Terminal uses. Unfortunately the font escapes me at the moment. Turn them all back on with Font Book and Terminal will run just fine.

    EDIT: It's Monaco that you turned off, I bet. Terminal requires it.
