Re: opening files using terminal (Unity)
Tab-completion will complete an application name, but it will also complete file names. So if you are working in the directory of the file "example.odf" then "exam<tab>" will complete the file name also. If you are in any other directory you can specify the absolute path, and tab-complete it.

If there are multiple options for the clue you have given ( do "ls -al /home/USERNAME/Do<tab>") nothing will be displayed. double tapping the tab key will list your options (will list Downloads/ and Documents/ in our example)
Regarding the errors, many gui applications that are started from the terminal will through errors. start firefox from a terminal and watch what happens. If the applications are behaving normally then the errors may be disregarded.
I dream of a world where our lives can remain private, and our technology can remain open to all.
