lxterminal sometimes not showing prompt on start.

Post by shinchyn »

Installed lxterminal on archlinux + lxde. Sometimes, I found when I start lxterminal, there is no prompt in it. But, if I press any character, i.e. Enter key, the prompt come out instantly.
How did this be solved ?

Hi

I'm having the same error and in addition LXTerminal sometimes doesn't change the actual working directory, if I'm opening LXTerminal for example in ~/tmp it future on points to ~.

Yes. Sometimes I also found the error. When I opened a folder with long names in PCmanFM, and opened a lxterminal from it, the prompt showed I am in my home location, not the location of the folder. But I renamed it with a short name, and the error disappeared. Anyhow, I don't like folders with long name, that would let me spend more time in reading it.
