    Default Where's the Konsole?

    Where's the konsole/terminal in Gnome? I see xterm but it's not the same.

    If you didn't install KDE you won't get 'konsole' but if you did install
    the Gnome packages you should get 'gnome-terminal'. Install both and
    you can run either app in either environment (I LOVE 'konsole', though I
    run Gnome primarily).

    Good luck.

    Thanks, I found it.

    what is the x-term used for? and why is there a super user terminal? I tried it and it didn't open. Why would you need that when all you have to do is use $ su to get to a root prompt.

    xterm is just the simplest terminal that always comes with every distro
    as part of X, vs as part of Gnome or KDE. A super-user terminal is
    probably just the same thing but loaded as 'root' to save a step for
    people who like to save steps.

    Good luck.
