Thanks a lot for the help and the info.
SO , let me see if I understand right , I need to use the latest
version of VTE ( 0.35 maybe ? ) and then the problem will be fixed ?.
I double check the suggestion of :
settings → compatibility → emulation -> "xterm".
But my xfce terminal has this settings :(
I also check my fedora 19 adn they use vte0.28 , which is really wear,
since there the terminal is working fine ( xfce terminal )
The problem is not just the terminal message , the problem is that it
does not let me run any command ( I have to type in example: ls + ctr
+ j ) , the Enter button is not working
Thanks a lot for the help
