When you are new to this Forum, and have installed a Linux Distribution, and then come looking for Help, one of the first things you will be told is eg:
"Enable your firewall (not on by default in many Distros). Go to Terminal (Ctrl-Alt-t) and enter the following and press <Enter>.
sudo ufw enable
You enter your password etc and you can find the rest if you have not done so.
BUT (I always have a but) - with Linux Mint Mate Qiana, sure you can get to Terminal through Menu, but I (you the user) want to be able to access it quickly.
There is a workaround for having Terminal one click away with the Desktop, and it is as follows:
- Click Menu
- Ignore reference to Terminal
- Click Applications - All
- scroll down for Terminal
- Add to Panel
It will appear left corner of your Panel - drag and drop to where on Panel you want it - then it is only a click away
I am reliably told by one source that in prior versions of LMM, Ctrl-Alt-t worked. I can't dispute that, I came in at 17. It DOESN'T work by default in 17.
HOWEVER (I often have a however following a but), you can take the following steps to override the default:
- Go To Menu > Applications > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts
- Browse to Desktop > "Run a terminal"
- Click on the Shortcut, and it shows "New shortcut..."
- Press Ctrl+Alt+T, and it shows Ctrl+Alt+T
- Click the Close button and try the new shortcut.
No need to reboot.
Works for me!
