suddenly no LXterminal available any more

Thu Jan 16, 2020 1:09 pm

suddenly no LXterminal available any more:
bash scripts can not be executed,
and from file manager -> tools -> open directory in terminal => =>
"child process LXterminal cannot be executed (file or path not found)"
how can I fix that?

There's an easy way to do it. Just reflash your SD card.

Otherwise, you can try to fix the problem. Menu --> Preferences --> Add / Remove Software. Try reinstalling lxterminal, and while you're at it, install an alternative terminal like guake or xterm.
Ever wanted to run an .img file before flashing it to an SD card?
Or wished you could run Stretch on a Pi 4?
Or wanted to run two versions of Raspbian on a single Pi simultaneously?
You can do all of that, and more, with my Vdesktop script - https://bit.ly/2GeNuIw

it came to that issue when I set the screen to large screen defaults (appearance settings).
reinstalling lxterminal replies: already the newest version
it can be started from the systray, but not from file manager or from bash scripts.

trying to open the terminal from a file manager path makes this window appear:

what do I have to fill in?
or which way to re-configure somewhere else?

The proper way to do it is to put "x-terminal-emulator %s" in the Terminal Emulator line:

edit, cross-over posting -

solved :
appearently just
lxterminal // (lowercase)
in the first line
(and NOT LXterminal)

but for new issues I'll then try your proposal, too!
thanks a lot!
