    Hi there.
    So I think I may have deleted my terminal application...

    I put "terminal.app" in my finder. It doesn't come up. I have done extensive reading on this problem, and no, it is not in my applications/utilities folder.

    I can't find it anywhere. I've tried looking in every folder I can find. It's just not there.

    Is there any way to re-install the terminal? I tried using the Pacifist program with my apple install discs, but it wouldn't work.

    I'm so confused and frustrated, about to re-install, but I don't want to do it the windows way.

    Anyone have any ideas? Thank you.

    Have you searched for it using Spotlight? Click the little magnifying glass in the menu bar (or press ⌘ + spacebar) and type "Terminal" and see if it finds it.

    You can download iTerm, which is more or less the same thing.

    Yes, I have tried to use the spot light. Again, not there. It just isn't anywhere...

    I do have iTerm, but I'd like to have the standard terminal back.

    Well the only way to do that is with your installation disk. What happened when you tried using Pacifist?

    Honestly though, iTerm is the exact same thing with a different name. Terminals are terminals...
