I presume you are using Ubuntu with Unity (with the launcher icons
down the side of the screen).  This is the assumption since you just
said 'Ubuntu".  No, not in a terminal.  In fact you don't even need
the A, just hit the Windows key and it will bring up the Dash home
showing both files and apps.  If you hold down the Win key and hit A
then it shows just apps.

If you have been using Ubuntu and did not know that you have been
missing a great deal.

If you hold down the win key it will show you the hot keys available.
