 +===== Gnome Terminal =====
 + 
 +Often people may give a command for you to perform such as:
 + 
 +  - sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
 +  - [[md5sum|md5sum]] -c iso-name ​
 +  - [[irssi|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.
