I'll try to see what the problem is.  Do you get any output if you just 
type gnome-terminal from another terminal's command line?

I do note that in the System menu, I have:

Konsole (from kde4)
Konsole (from kf5)
XFCE Terminal

I then went into gnome-terminal.desktop and manually changed to:

Name=Gnome Terminal

We probably ought to do that in the book.

When I try the gnome terminal from the xfce system menu, I get nothing. 
  I can't find any messages about it either.

If I run, gnome-terminal --help, that works, so there is probably some 
configuration issue on my end.

It should install nm-connection-editor.  That's what I tested.

I do have an icon with a tool tip that says "Networking Disabled", but I 
still need to de-conflict with wicd.
