    Terminal window has changed
    HI there!

    This could be a very stupid question... Please don't laugh at me!

    Usually, when I opened Terminal, a window opened with some text like (I don't remember exactly) ssh#2... or/and You have mail... or/and My web address... etc, etc...

    I used to enter sudo su
    I was then asked for my password which I entered and then I was able to enter commands.

    Now, a window opens with only the cursor and when I enter a command, nothing happens !!!!!

    How can I be back to the window I used to work with?

    Thanks in advance for your help"

    Gerard


    PS : I didn't change anything in Terminal Preferences

    Thanks mike for replying!

    I wasn't doing anything special...

    I deleted the preferences file of Terminal and restarted.
    Everything is A-Okay by now.

    Problem is: Why did it happenned?
    Perhaps it will remain a mystery!

    well, without knowing what commands were issued.. it probably will! No matter though, sounds like it's fixed!
