Gnome-terminal invisible

Asked by Rasmus Paulin Beske on 2013-01-13

I'm new to Ubuntu 12.04.
After upgrading from 10.04 yesterday, my gnome-terminal is invisible. I have also tried with guake-terminal.

The terminal opens, but everything is total transparent (menubar and everything). I'm able to right-clicking in the writing space becasue the cursor changes like normal when the mouse is above the terminal, and from there getting acces to my color settings aswell as the transparency settings. (have tried to change everything)
It is impossible to write in the terminal since i cant see anything.

Hope this is a stupid and simple question, with an easy answer, so that I will quickly be able to work again.

If you press Akr+F2 and run:


Is it ok?

yes xterm is ok.
Well, I guess that will work for me.

If you use terminal a lot, I recommend you install guake. You can hide and show terminal with a shortcut key (F12 by default)

Can you help with this problem?
