When I open an Xfce4 terminal (0.8.6) and select Edit->Preferences the terminal just closes.

Does this happen to anyone else? Is this a known 'feature'? Is there a workround?

Just installed x11/xfce4-terminal, and tested. And it works fine for me:


May be one of its dependencies is broken on your system?
Personally I use "latest" repository, try to create /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/FreeBSD.conf with
Code:
FreeBSD: {
  url: "pkg+http://pkg.FreeBSD.org/${ABI}/latest",
  mirror_type: "srv",
  signature_type: "fingerprints",
  fingerprints: "/usr/share/keys/pkg",
  enabled: yes
}
inside. Then run # pkg update -f and # pkg upgrade.

Many many thanks for this - there were around 200 updates but it working now.
