Error Terminal Execution By Giving a Command

Hi Guys,


I am using Red Hat Linux 5 and GNOME Terminal is available there in the Accessories menu of Applications. But I don't see any run command option which can be used to type the name of the terminal and execute it directly as I used to do it under Mandrake Linux wherein I would type terminal and the terminal would get opened.

Thanks!

Dev.

Let me see if I got that correct, example :
Under KDE, if I want to start my terminal utility, I do : ALT + F2, "Run Command" window pops up, and then I enter name for application, in my case this is "konsole".
Under GNOME, I believe, the name of the terminal is "gnome-terminal", at least this is what I was able to find in the net. HTH.

Hi Sysgate,


Thanks for your participation. Well, today I figured it out and I discovered a lot more. Smilie

Yes, it is gnome-terminal which I can run with Run An Application utility. I found it in Add to Panel feature wherein I found other interesting stuffs too.

Have a nice time!

Dev.
