Question Installed Ubuntu 12.04 - cannot set GUI attributes

I would like to set screen resolution, fonts, etc., and have access to a command window as I did with 10.04.

What do I need to control my GUI?

Can you see the GUI desktop? If yes, then you can do such customization using the "Settings" option, located in the left side menu bar.
