    Terminal issue
    Hi there,
    One of our users is having problems with the terminal.
    When opened, a small (10x5) window opens and displays the red "traffic light' button and thats about it.

    I've tried to fix this by the following:
    * Tried changing the window layout (currently set to 10 columns and 5 rows or something rediculas) - made no diffrence
    * Tried deleting the plist which holds the settings for the terminal
    * Tried changing the font which terminal uses to arial and others, no change
    * Tried 're-installing' terminal, removing it and replacing it with a known working copy.

    Any ideas on what to do from here?
    Thanks in advance.

    Re-enable the font Monaco. You don't have to use it in Terminal, but it must be enabled in the system.
    Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it!
