Ctrl+Alt+T and you can open the terminal. – jokerdino Aug 10 '12 at 23:09

You have two possibilities:

  1. open the Dash by clicking on the top launcher or pressing the "super"-key (Windows-icon-labelled on most keyboards) and start typing the word "terminal". When the terminal's launcher symbol appears, just click on it.
  2. Press Ctrl+Alt+T.

Both ways start the default gnome terminal emulator. You can install several alternative emulators from the Ubuntu software center.

Method 1:

Press the Ctrl + Alt + T keys together

Method 2:

Hit the Windows key and type in terminal (then hit the Enter Key)

Method 3:

Click Dash Home and type in Run (then hit the Enter Key)

Method 4:

Click Dash Home and type in Terminal (then hit the Enter Key)

Method 5:

Click Dash Home, then Applications and then click See more results near Installed. (It'll be in the list)

There may be more ways to access it but this is all what I know so far.
