I'm having trouble with my MacBook Pro. Specifically, it always crashes when I try to open the Terminal app. I get the following report:

I have tried to open with another account, but I get the same result. I've also tried to open in safe mode by holding cmd+5 on restart. It can be opened fine from there. I thought the issue might have been that the software needed updating but that wasn't the case. That being said, it took 4 attempts for me to be able to update the software, it kept crashing on me then. This has only been an issue when trying to open the terminal i.e. it doesn't happen with any other app. Also, I haven't downloaded any other apps since this started so I'm confused about what's happening. The terminal is one of the most important features I use, thus need this fixing.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • Have you already tried to reapply the 10.10.4 Combo update?

  • I've just ran the mac with a new user and the terminal works fine from there. What's going on?

Things to try...

  • Clear Terminal's saved state...
    ~/Library/Saved Application State/com.apple.Terminal.savedState Delete the entire com.apple.Terminal.savedState folder.

  • Fix permissions, check & if necessary repair disk, using Disk Utility

  • re-apply 10.10.4 using the 10.10.4 combo update, not the delta from App Store - as @klanomath already mentioned.

  • Reset Home folder permissions & ACLs using OnyX - Maintenance tab/permissions, tick the box at the top then Execute.

  • +1 It worked. I would upvote, but not enough points yet. I tried all of the above and the one that fixed it was repair disk using disk utility. Is it bad that I've had to do this considering I only bought the mac 4 months ago. Surely that shouldn't happen this early on, should it?

  • I wouldn't let any one-off occurrence bother you too much. A single error could have been caused in many ways, few of them terminal. Just make sure you always have Time Machine backups & check the drives periodically, as you would with any machine. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure ;)

    here you go (+), since the OP could not and it is a good answer
