The mosty used window managers are Gnome, KDE and Xfce. First way to get yourself a console would be using the window managers menue:
'''KDE''' KDE-Menue > System > Konsole'''Gnome''' Applications > Accessories > Terminal'''Xfce''' Applications > Terminal
A different approach would be pressing ''Alt F2''. That should open a dialog box, where you can enter one single command. Depending on which distribution of Linux you chose and which window manager you use, you can try (all without quotation marks) "xterm", "konsole", "gnome-terminal", "gtkterm", "kterm", "xfce4-terminal"... there's a lot of graphical console emulators!
