I changed something in ~/.bashrc and after I sourced it, my Terminal hasn't started anymore.

It just starts without any Text and crashes after a few seconds, I tried to restore the old .bashrc-file, but it didn't change anything.

There isn't a color scheme anymore either, I have absolutly no clue.


I would suggest removing and reinstalling the Pantheon Terminal through the App Center.

If you run into any other issue that might require access to a working terminal you can install the Gnome Terminal through the App Center and use that to fix whatever might need fixing.

Refer to these instructions if you want to set Gnome Terminal as your permanent replacement.
