Where can I find the terminal in Lubuntu? I thought the CTRL+T option works as it does in Ubuntu too.

Acorrding to the documentation:

Menu -> System Tools -> LXTerminal

Alternatively you can also press Ctrl+Alt+T. It's the shortcut for all Ubuntu based distros

Ctrl-Alt-T is the default short cut - for both Lubuntu and Ubuntu.

ALT-F2 and type lxterminal

But in Lubuntu one is not bound to use lxterminal which is somewhat limited (less settings) compared to Gnome Terminal and Xfce Terminal, and may install those in synaptic and use them instead.

To set shortcuts in Lubuntu edit the file /home/user/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml

right click on mouse or trackpad: it will show up the Terminal option. Or go to the left down corner and go on "acessories" and Terminal...
