I installed VMware Player on my Windows 7 PC. Now I downloaded ubuntu (ubuntu-12.10-desktop-i386.iso) software from http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop .
I installed ubuntu via the instruction at http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/11287/how-to-run-ubuntu-in-windows-7-with-vmware-player/ .
It is version Ubuntu 12.10. Now I have the ubuntu installed and it shows up in the left corner when I double-click on VMWare Player icon.
How do I get the UNIX like prompt in ubuntu here? I tried all icons but I find no ways. The documentation in the above link shows there are "Applications" ->"Accessories"->"Terminal" menus that takes it to the UNIX like terminal. But I do not see such options.
I anticipated something was wrong and I reinstalled ubuntu and that gives the 2nd ubuntu(2) icon in the VMWare screen.
When I double-click "Ubuntu" or "Ubuntu(2)", I get the other screen (E2.jpg). Could you let me know how I get to the terminal? Thanks a lot.
