I had a problem with my mouse. It's not working. Does anybody know the shortcut key to open the terminal? Please help me out! We can open a new terminal after opening the terminal with the mouse by using "shift+ctl+N". I want to open only with the keyboard!

Please help!

CCM 2821 users have said thank you to us this month

thanks very much , got it at last
but if user used this short key ctrl+Alt+F1
it will ask login and pwd.

but if user wants to exit then how?

and that too it is taking some extra time than ctrl+Alt+t
How to exit this window??
press Alt+F2 then type gnome-terminal
press Alt+F7 u will exit and back to window
