I haven't seen this in Mint, but I have in another distro, and if we are talking about the same thing, the answer to the question that you asked is that you can't. It is a GUI application (Gnome, not that this matters), and that means that you need a GUI to run it.
However, don't give up, because essentially what the GUI application does is give you an easy way of running things that you could run from the command line, all concentrated in one place and with a GUI front end. So, the 'ping' tab does what the command line command 'ping' does (plus, gives you a bar graph, which is nice, but hardly essential, in most cases), the netstat tab does what netstat does, traceroute does what traceroute does, whois does what whois does. One exception is 'port scan' and that does what nmap does (IIRC), although you'll need a bit of time with the nmap man page to get the options that you want.
