    Hey,

    it seems like I have a serious problem with my terminal application. Nothing happens when I try to open it. Moreover, the icon has changed (see attached screenshot). Almost looks like I have deleted it...can't remember having done anything like that. Is there any way to fix it or to download the app from somewhere?

    thx

    Is it still located in Macintosh HD / Applications / Utilities?
    Maybe you can use Pacifist together with the Restore or Installation DVD and extract it or tell us your Mac OS X version and someone can upload it.

    It is still in HD/Applications/Utilities. But have a look at my Utilities folder. There is something weird going on don't you thing so? Anyone encountered something like that before? Might have to reinstall my whole OS. Working with Leopard 10.5.8 on an Intel Mac Book.



    Actually, it would be great if someone could upload it for me!

    Does that also happen with any other account (even if you create one temporarily)?
    Have you repaired permissions via Disk utility yet?


    Btw, you can edit your posts via the [​IMG] button, or multi-quote posts via the [​IMG] button, as sequential posts are "against" the rules.
