Ubuntu novice question re commands
by wpgwpg - 6/30/13 5:55 PM
First off let me say I'm new to Linux and am just starting to get my feet wet with Ubuntu and Mint Linux. I just bought a little paperback book describing all the commands you can issue and how they work when you get away from the nice user friendly GUI interfaces they have. I've discovered that with Mint, you can click the start button and Terminal and enter commands, but I can't find the way to get to that command interface in Ubuntu. I feel like I'm missing something fundamental, but it's not obvious how to do it with Ubuntu like it is with Mint. Either I'm missing something very basic or you can't do it with Ubuntu; and I'm very curious to know which it is! Can someone clear this up for this newbie?
