    you sure you set the terminal profile correctly?
    Uh, I'd probably just uninstall the sucker and reinstall it.
    It might have to do with a theme/color system-wide change you might have recently made, if you did?

    Until you can get it sorted, a work around would be to right click on your desktop, choose "create launcher," call it "Xterm" and type in:
    Code:
    xterm
    ...as the command. Press okay. Click on the newly created Xterm icon on your desktop and see if it gives you a terminal where you can see the type.

    Delete ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal folder and log out. Login back and launch Terminal again. It should work fine.
    .gconf is a hidden folder. Select Show Hidden Files in Nautilus to make it visible.
    Or
    Press Alt+F2, type xterm and execute this
    Code:
    rm -r ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-terminal
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Hi devil's casper!

    Mint may be different, but looking in my .gconf/apps/ directory in Hardy, I'm not seeing a file or folder for gnome-terminal. Is it created when and if gnome-terminal is customised?

    Yes. Its created when one customise gnome-terminal.
    There are a few other locations like .gconfd and .gnome2 where one can look for conf files.

    Last resource is, delete all conf folders.

    Try going into a tty away from the GUI. ctrl+alt+somethingofyourchoosingmaybef3
    Does the problem remain?

    another thing to do is try gconf-editor.
    hack the keys and their colors.
