missing .xterm file in geany

Thu May 31, 2012 9:02 pm

Hi Everyone

trying to do a bit of python with geany, but when after i write my program and ask it to run, i get an error saying it cannot find the terminal xterm and to check the preferences.

after doing this, the program is not linking to a terminal but i cannot find one. There seem to be two in usr/bin, (lxterminal and x-termianal-emulator) however when i select either of them and close the preferences, it does not save the option (there does not seem to be a save and quite option, just close) and on opening again, the file reverts to bin/bash.

would anyone know how to fix this as i would really like to get going with python.

I too had this problem, and I found an answer on an ubuntu forum here

Basically to fix the problem, open LXTerminal in accessories and type sudo apt-get install xterm
This will install the Xterm
This might not be the only way, or the best way, but I'm fairly new to all of this.
