Hi Doug,
Silly question:
On my system (qcad 2.0.5) I have a menu item  View/views/command line 
If you select this does it come back?

If that is too obvious there is a file (again on my machine ~ which is not 
running ubuntu <heretic/>)   being ~/.qt/qcadrc

This is a text file, and contains among other things, the window position for 
the command line  (I am thinking the window may be appearing, but outside your 
If you close qcad, rename this file and then restart qcad a new default file 
(with the command line in the default position) should result.

If you feel confident you could have a go at editing the values in your 
existing ~/.qt/qcadrc file, but I would suggest you do a backup of it first!!
