Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Open up the KDE control center
go to "regional and accessibility"
select "Keyboard shortcuts"
under the heading "desktop" should be a "run command"
check it's ALT+F2 ... if it ain't ...
okay, now i am really confused. Before when i pressesd Alt+F2 nothing was happening. You said to check in the keyboard shortcuts, so i went in there to check it, and it says Run Command Alt+F2. I closed that settings window and hit Alt+F2 and now it works. Very strange... but at least it works now.
Astro, i'm not familiar with the term 'virtual console', so i can't say if the run command is called a virtual console or not.
