Terminal works just fine in my admin account, but won't open a terminal window in any of my regular user accounts. If I choose Shell > New Window > New Window with Settings, I get the following "Internal error":

Exception Name: NSInvalidArgumentException
Description: -[TTView touchBar]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x7fde735b0710
User Info: (null)

macOS 10.12 Sierra


Go to System Preferences —> Parental Controls —> (select your Standard User Account) —> Allowed Apps In the below list see whether terminal is allowed or not. if not just enable it.

  • Aadu, thanks for your answer. I have parental controls disabled, so this is not the culprit. It seems the terminal app opens ok but it can't open a window for some reason. – yogert909 Sep 10 '17 at 5:27
  • After opening up one terminal window , if you try opening another window by pressing cmd+n will it work ? – Aadu Thoma Sep 11 '17 at 2:50
