In GNOME Desktop, when I type /usr/bin/firefox, the Firefox browser will open. How can I open a command line window in the same way?

I know this has come up before, but you should really go through your previously asked questions and accept answers if they solved your problem. All you need to do is click the checkmark to the left of the answer to accept it –  Michael Mrozek Dec 19 '10 at 8:01

Use GNOME Terminal:

/usr/bin/gnome-terminal

I'd guess you can get away with just typing gnome-terminal –  xenoterracide Dec 19 '10 at 10:07
    
@xenoterracide, I expect so, but I followed the OP's example. But normally /usr/bin would be in the $PATH. –  cjm Dec 19 '10 at 10:26
    
@cjm yeah, not criticizing you, more so mentioning it in case the OP doesn't realize it. –  xenoterracide Dec 19 '10 at 10:37

@user2914 I'm guessing "It works thanks" and the lack of a checkmark is a bad sign for the whole "please accept answers" thing –  Michael Mrozek Dec 19 '10 at 11:00
