how to open blender in terminal mode in ubuntu?

as the title says, how do i open blender with the terminal, i want to begin game engine scripting.

Also, why is it that games made with blender dont look so good, what features is blender game engine missing?

Open terminal and “cd” to your blender folder, type ./blender
It is possible (in KDE) to mark “Open in terminal” in your blender desktop icon/link properties.

I guess depending on your version of Ubuntu you might also supply the -w parameter. For a full set of all available parameters check it out with -h.

i did as suggested, it launched blender but it doesn’t work like the tutorial. I dont have the blender console.
