Smile GUI not working, need some command line tit-bits!!!!


Hi Guys. I'm not exactly a newbie, but I'm certainly no expert! OK, here goes.. My GUI has gone kaputz. I click on an icon (i.e applications) and it opens firefox. I click on Places and it opens my e-mail facility. I'm not too bothered about this for now. I'd just like to know;

1. How to open files from the command line (I can open applications; packagename PROGRAM), I just want to open files.

2. How to move 1 file from one directory to another (I already know about the commands cd and ls).

3. How to open the terminal from the keyboard.

Thanx

Hardy Heron, core 2 duo, 2GB corsair RAM (got a high FSB, not sue quite what though).
