-===== Gnome Terminal ===== 
-  
-Often people may give a command for you to perform such as: 
-  
-  - sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade 
-  - md5sum -c iso-name  
-  - irssi 
-  
-The Gnome terminal application is invoked by pressing the following keys at the same time: 
-  
- 
- - Control, Alt + T 
-  
-This will spawn a new window on your screen with: 
-  
- 
- - vinux@vinux:~$ 
-  
-This is called a prompt, the terminal session is waiting for a command to be typed. 
-  
-This article is using a default user account found on a live Vinux image. 
-  
-The prompt is broken into four sections. 
-  
- - Username of the account being used, in this case vinux. 
-  
- - Hostname of the system, in this case also vinux. 
-  
- 
- - ~, this refers to the home directory of the user. On Vinux this is /home/vinux/. 
-  
- 
- - $ represents a [[bash|Bash]] prompt that does not have elevated privellages.
