If you are in the Gnome desktop environment with no mouse, then hit alt-f2 and type gnome-terminal.

If this is something you'll want to do frequently you might want to map a keyboard shortcut to the command gnome-terminal. I haven't used gnome for a while, but I think it was somewhere by editing gconf.
