Question: Why am I seeing "terminal-- -bash --80x24"?

Hi all,

When I open click Terminal app, below window appears but nothing else.

Would anyone please advise me what might be the reason for me seeing that?

Many thanks

I found a solution guys! All good now;


, and go to
File (or Shell) -> New Command
. Type in
open -e .profile
(or substitute some other file instead of
), and hit Run. That should open TextEdit with the file you want to fix; you can remove the offending lines there.
