Well, as dumb as it sounds, I was having some trouble with Fish, and decided to uninstall it. The wrong way. I simply used
apt-get remove fish without using
chsh -s /bin/bash beforehand.
So this is now what happens:
- Terminal may open, but will hang with a blinking cursor.
- PS1 will never show.
- Closing Terminal will log out the current user.
- Installing another Terminal emulator does not resolve this as those hang as well.
I'm on the latest version of Freya. How I got to this point is that I discovered that Fish had problems customizing the prompt when using
fish_config on debian versions of it, so it was recommended to uninstall the debian version and use a different one in order to fix this issue. So this is where I uninstalled it without remembering to set bash as the default Terminal.
Where can I go from here without completely restoring Elementary OS?
