    terminal at start up?

    Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal takes too long for my tastes. How do I get terminal to begin running once I boot or have a quick launch button for it on the dashboard or desktop? I did look at System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications I don't know the path for terminal.

    you can put it in startup applications system> preferences > startup applications

    I chose the easiest way which is system> preferences > startup applications...choose the options tab and then close everything (apart from the terminal) and choose 'remember current running application'

    Ctrl/Alt/t or change it in keyboard short cuts.
    Remember hence where you come and pass it down.

    There's Tilda and Guake from the repositories. Ready to go at login,launch key,configurable. I personally prefer Tilda as it can be placed to open anywhere on the desktop.

    You could just learn to type fast. Pressing ALT + F2 and typing 'gnome-terminal' is faster than clicking a docking icon or panel shortcut.

    By the way - 'gnome-terminal' is the path you can use in Startup Applications to have it startup automatically.

    Alternatively, you can right click your top/bottom panel and click 'Add to Panel', 'Application Launcher' then select 'Accessories > Terminal' and press Okay.

    Or just set a keyboard shortcut (F12, in my case) to open a terminal.
