I have recently bought a dedicated server, which is running Ubuntu 10.4, but there is no terminal in the applications or in system. How do I add it for easy access (I'm new to Linux).

if it is a server, aren't you lready using comand line¿ – xangua May 23 '11 at 0:22

In a default Ubuntu 10.04 installation, the terminal can be opened via Applications ▸ Accessories ▸ Terminal. If this menu item does not exist, you should consult the company that installed the operating system for you.

Right click Applications -> Edit Menus -> Accessories -> check the box next to Terminal.

You can also add a new item to the menu by again right clicking Applications -> Edit Menus -> Accessories -> New Item. The command for the terminal is gnome-terminal
