Are you using Ubuntu with Unity? Open the Dash (the button on the top left) and type software center (if you really want the terminal, type terminal). – edwin Aug 22 '13 at 22:40

It's normally called 'terminal'

Some ways to access the terminal:

  • CTRL + ALT + T
  • by typing terminal in the dash (open the dash by pressing the windows key)
  • CTRL + ALT + (F1 - F6) (Note: you will leave the desktop and enter the full command line environment, get back with CTRL + ALT + F7)
