suddenly no LXterminal available any more:
bash scripts can not be executed,
and from file manager -> tools -> open directory in terminal => =>
"child process LXterminal cannot be executed (file or path not found)"
how can I fix that?

There's an easy way to do it. Just reflash your SD card.

Otherwise, you can try to fix the problem. Menu --> Preferences --> Add / Remove Software. Try reinstalling lxterminal, and while you're at it, install an alternative terminal like guake or xterm.
My doctor told me my brain is as useful as a Raspberry Pi. Is that a compliment?

it came to that issue when I set the screen to large screen defaults (appearance settings).
reinstalling lxterminal replies: already the newest version
it can be started from the systray, but not from file manager or from bash scripts.

trying to open the terminal from a file manager path makes this window appear:

what do I have to fill in?
or which way to re-configure somewhere else?

The proper way to do it is to put "x-terminal-emulator %s" in the Terminal Emulator line:

edit, cross-over posting -

solved :
appearently just
lxterminal // (lowercase)
in the first line
(and NOT LXterminal)

but for new issues I'll then try your proposal, too!
thanks a lot!
