I would like to launch the ubuntu terminal from inside fluxbox (I don't use Unity).

However I can't manage to find the command name to launch this application ?

What's its name ?

    The commands for all Ubuntu versions are in this answer askubuntu.com/a/183776/72216 – Jacob Vlijm Dec 6 '14 at 23:22
  • This is not a duplicate, running a custom WM won't have the same keybindings as the major ones and the question explicitly asks for the command-line name. – Seth Dec 9 '14 at 3:09

The GNOME terminal binary is located at /usr/bin/gnome-terminal.

Don't mix that up with /bin/bash. GNOME terminal starts bash, but there's no sense in starting a bash session on its own in a GUI.


Its name is gnome-terminal :-)
