    He,

    for some reason terminal is no longer in the utilities folder. I can't find it with spotlight either.

    But now I want it back. So how can I do this. I've got 1 mac os 10.5 install disc for my iMac. and 2 extra discs called install disc. I tried installing the optional things and basics. But still no terminal.

    So how can I get terminal back.

    Ok,

    I think (and really hope) that it's solved. Somewhere I read that I should use pacifist and the original install disc. I actually didn't want to use pacifist, cause I don't want an overflow of all kinds of programs I won't use at the end.

    But I used. Then I thought I couldn't use it as it said it can't open programs when I tried the button "open package". But I was too fast. I missed the button open apple install disc. That worked. Then I searched for terminal and I found the app. Then I right clicked with my mouse and said "install to default location". Then it extracted.

    And it has finished now and it has worked. Woohoo.

    (I'm saying this to help others who have deleted their terminal somehow)
