I use terminal a lot and none of the shortcuts work for launching a terminal. It is really a pain to launch through the menu. I'm sure someone would have figured it out. Please share the ubuntu terminal shortcut key, thanks.

    Ubuntu by default doesnt include a shortcut for Terminal window. However you set your favorite key as shortcut for Ubuntu Terminal.

    • Goto System->Preferences->Keyboard Shortcuts
    • Under Desktop category, choose Run a Terminal
    • Now press the key you want to set as shortcut (I pressed Ctrl + T)
    • Click close
    • Now Ctrl + T is the Ubuntu Terminal Shortcut

    Hope this helps.
