There may be other ways using GUI clients, since the implication is
it's still possible to start utilities, and it looks like you're changing
settings from the command line.  For example, start emacs and use

M-x set-variable RET explicit-shell-file-name RET "/bin/zsh" RET

(double quotes needed), then

M-x shell RET

to get a shell command line. M-x is usually entered as ESC x and there
is TAB completion for the Emacs names.

It just depends what you have access to.

When I click to open the terminal, it starts up but quickly disappears. I have tried with other terminals but unfortunately it did not help to fix the problem. Please help me!
