Hey, i have installed I3 for the very first time. Now i can open Browsers etc. And i can also open a Terminal with alt+enter But!!: If i open a terminal, there is just a black background in the terminal and i cant write anything in it... is there any solution ? Because without having a working terminal, I3 is very useless for me. Thank you very very much.

I realised, that i can open "xterm" but alt+enter tries to open the gnome-terminal. that doesnt work correctly.
