linux console

hello ive started to learn python code for blender 2.57. i want to un hide the console but the button for that in the help menu isn’t there. how do i get it showing.
this is for the Linux version of blender 2.57

open the terminal and write blender to it. this will open blender with the console. Alternatively you must write the correct path in the terminal to open the correct blender version. Mine looks like:

/home/sevi/Programme/blender-2.57-linux-glibc27-i686/blender2.57

ah yes i see how that works. thanks sevi
