Question Xfce Terminal in Gnome Desktop Fedora 20?

Hey guys!

Hope you're doing fine.

I had Fedora 20; it was installed in persistent mode a couple of weeks ago, pretty barebone with no additional software.
Then I had to reinstall it as I messed with my previous installation. This time I went for a live installation and let the forensics and graphic tools to be installed as well; still Fedora with Gnome Dekstop.

I noticed that my Terminal in this new Fedora 20, still using Gnome desktop, is xfce4-terminal 0.6.3.

1) Is that normal/regular/expected?

Also, I receive these Warnings when opening Gedit (whether it's just opening it or creating a new file) from Terminal:

# gedit

(gedit:2555): dconf-WARNING **: failed to commit changes to dconf: The connection is closed

(gedit:2555): dconf-WARNING **: failed to commit changes to dconf: The connection is closed

(gedit:2555): dconf-WARNING **: failed to commit changes to dconf: The connection is closed
Error creating proxy: The connection is closed (g-io-error-quark, 18)
Error creating proxy: The connection is closed (g-io-error-quark, 18)

Error creating proxy: The connection is closed (g-io-error-quark, 18)
Error creating proxy: The connection is closed (g-io-error-quark, 18)


2) WTF?!
I made sure that I updated Fedora, installed free and non free repositories, installed Nvidia Driver, Devil's Pie, Chrome and Flash, and a few extensions.

2.1) How do I switch back to Gnome Terminal? (Is this actually feasible?) How come?

I'm doing my own search on the web about this; any additional help will be really appreciated

Re: Xfce Terminal in Gnome Desktop Fedora 20?

Running gnome apps, such as gedit, after changing user has become a rather horrible mess. It is all to do with the ownership of the directory that apps run from and there was an ongoing argument about who was responsible that seems to have no sensible solution.

See the discussion here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=753882

Hi octatato.

Gotcha, and thanks for the reply!
I got to resolve the 'Error creating proxy...' by deleting the dconf folder.
Does it hurt to switch to Gnome Shell? I mean, is it possible to do that?

Oh, by the way, please note that the first installation said Terminal.
The new intallation (after deleting the drive using Parted Magic) says Xfce4 Terminal.
