Could you tell me how to get the Terminal application working in 
kdebase-4.4.4nb1 on a NetBSD/i386 5.0.2 machine, please?
When I clck the K menu button, then System (under Applications), then Terminal 
a command prompt window opens with Shell in its title bar, but inside the 
window is this message:
Warning: Could not start program '/bin/sh' with arguments '/bin/sh'.

(Typing Alt-F2 then entering xterm into to the dialog box launches xterm, but 
it's not as pretty as Terminal.)
Isn't Terminal from Xfce?  I thought KDE had konsole as its enhanced terminal 
program, and GNOME has GNOME Terminal.  You might find konsole more suitable 
than Terminal for KDE?

My memory is from KDE 3.5.8 (?) from Linux Slackware; I found it much more 
difficult to get around in KDE 4.2.4, hardly ever use it.

I remember when I tried to run Terminal from KDE 3.5.8, the computer 
immediately froze, requiring Power Off/Power On reboot, but Terminal ran in 

I am now in Terminal running in Xfce 4.6.1.

xterm has a long man page, so I figure there must be ways of enhancing it, but 
an awful long learning curve.


I remember KDE4's terminal on NetbSD 5 amd64 was not working about a month ago if someone runs "Konsole" as root (though user's "Konsole was working"). I dont have KDE4 to test it now.

I think he is trying as root.
