    Whenever I open terminal all I get is this really small tab with the X button. It doesn't even close the shell. It just minimizes it. I've tried changing the window settings and I've tried using Zoom under window and all it does is move to the dock. I tried restarting and nothing.


    I have a picture attached.

    Mmmm...I had that problem a few years ago, but I forget exactly how I fixed it. I think I had been dicking around in the .profile file or something. Did you do anything out of the ordinary recently?

    Aha, I remember what the problem was! I had the Monaco font disabled :eek: Re-enable that font (assuming you turned it off), and problem should be solved.

    EDIT: Better still, here's a link.
