Could be using a different window manager that does not use icons. Why don't you ask the person what is being used and then maybe we could help you.

Lightbulb Shortcut keys

You can type Alt+F2 this will bring up a Run program, in the text feild type the command xterm and press enter, this will bring up an xteriminal.
If you know the command for another terminal feal free to type it in and pres enter.
I suggest you use xterm its not as pretty as other terminal programs, but it can do the same jobs as you can do in everyother terminal it also uses less RAM.
