Failed to execute default Terminal Emulator. Input/output error.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 12, 2011
In Xubuntu 11.10 while trying to start Htop from the menu I got a window saying: "Failed to execute default Terminal Emulator. Input/output error."
This is a brand new installation of Xubuntu 11.10 and xfce4-terminal is manually set as a terminal emulator in preferred applications because the default preferred applications disappeared somehow. Any idea for a fix? Thank you!
F15 "Failed to execute default file manager" error
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 16, 2011
This is a new install of F15. Whenever I insert a DVD/CDROM or USB, I'm getting one or more errors,
Failed to execute default File Manager. Failed to execute child process "file manager" (No such file or directory).
Unable to mount [disk]. DBus error org.gtk. Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed An operation is already pending.
I found a similar problem but the solution was for Ubuntu and I don't have "mimeopen" utility.
Failed to execute default web browser input output error
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 5, 2012
So I have google-chrome-beta (Version 22.0.1229.26 beta) installed, and Xfce is having issues with it. Whenever I try and pass a URL through to my web browser (say, opening a link from irssi), it opens in a new tab in Chrome (great) but then returns an error saying "failed to execute default web browser - input output error." (profoundly annoying).
This only happens with Chrome, if my browser is set to Opera, it opens in a new tab in Opera and does not return the error. Same thing with Firefox. This bothers me because Chrome is the browser I want to use. Any ideas on how to resolve this? Even just suppressing the error message would work wonders for me. Thanks in advance.
mount error in android terminal emulator: ioctl loopsetfd failed device or resource busy

I am using PuTTY to open up a SSH terminal to my Android phone which has BusyBox 1.21.1 installed. I was trying to mount an ISO image with the following command in the terminal, mind the fact that I was already in superuser mode and my phone is rooted and this similar approach works like a charm in my Ubuntu 12.04 machine:
mount -o ro,loop -t cdfs slitaz-4.0.iso temp/mntpnt

Terminal emulator with root as default
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 23, 2013
Hello fellow Linux users, I am running an Xubuntu 12.04 and have installed 3 terminal emulators....guake terminal, GNOME terminal and Xfce4 terminal.
By default Ubuntu distributions require you to do
to execute something related to system or do
to grant myself root priviledges. My question is can I modifie any of these terminals to execute
upon me opening them? And therefore have one terminal with constant root priviledges, while on others I have normaln juristiction.
Ubuntu should have a new default shell in the terminal emulator, possibly fish
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 22, 2014
I know that replacing the default shell (at least unless it was a superset of bash, which fish ain't esepecially in the scripting, being sensible instead) for a user is a dangerous idea, but I don't really see why the default shell in terminal emulator in stock ubuntu shouldn't be something more user friendly and capable.

Python open default terminal, execute commands, keep open, AND then allow userinput
location: linuxexchange.com - date: June 14, 2014
I'm wanting to open a terminal from a Python script (not one marked as executable, but actually doing python3 myscript.py to run it), have the terminal run commands, and then keep the terminal open and let the user type commands into it.
EDIT (as suggested): I am primarily needing this for Linux (I'm using Xubuntu, Ubuntu and stuff like that). It would be really nice to know Windows 7/8 and Mac methods, too, since I'd like a cross-platform solution in the long-run. Input for any system would be appreciated, however.
Just so people know some useful stuff pertaining to this, here's some code that may be difficult to come up with without some research. This doesn't allow user-input, but it does keep the window open. The code is specifically for Linux:
import subprocess, shlex;
params=shlex.split('x-terminal-emulator -e bash -c "python3 \''+myFilePathString+'\'; echo \'(Press any key to exit the terminal emulator.)\'; read -n 1 -s"');
Upgraded from 12.04 to 12.10, "failed to idle channel 1" error
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 3, 2012
So stupid me decided to update from 12.04 to 12.10 Beta-2 because I figured that my luck had changed when dealing with OS upgrades (I've had a data-ruining problem with every OS upgrade since Windows 95).
I updated to 12.10 Beta-2 through the Update Manager in 12.04. After going through the entire installation and the final "restart the computer" step I was greeted to a lovely error screen. The screen has a bunch of numbers (sorry, I'm not tech savvy enough to know how to retrieve an error report) and the lines "failed to idle channel 1", followed by a couple seconds of a frozen screen, followed by another line with "PFIFO playlist failed" (may not be exact wording but definitely PFIFO playlist).
I've googled (through my phone) to people saying that adding "nomodeset" to the GRUB loader will load the OS. And it did... somewhat. I got my desktop loaded, but with no sidebar or topbar, and only my background and desktop icons. Clicking on anything
