from what you tell me, everything is working normally. i'm really not that sure what exactly you're trying to do. either you want to work in GUI mode (ie run level 5) or you want to work in text mode (eg run level 1, 2, or 3). are you saying that you want to use the GUI and use the terminal. if thats the case, gnome-terminal is in your menu. if i've misunderstood, can you please clarify?

Try running a program called terminal or konsole in the GUI?
