I installed Xubuntu on an old Dell Latitude laptop, PII, 400MHz, 256MB, 40GB
HDD dual boot with Windows. There were no problems during the installation
and the few things I've tried, e.g. office apps, config apps work except
whenever I use Application->Accessories->Terminal, a terminal window briefly
appears and then the machine automatically logs out and takes me to the
login window. I had run various Redhats on this machine without problems
but this is my first Ubuntu installation. Any ideas?
