The way you run Linux commands from the desktop, is to open a Linux terminal emulation window. This is a window that opens on the Linux desktop and gives you a Linux command line prompt.
At the Linux command prompt, you run Linux commands to do Linux system administration tasks, like create directories, copy and move files, create users that'll be working on the system, and change user permissions, to restrict user access to certain areas of the system.
This is an excellent way to learn how to run linux commands, so you can learn how to use Linux and administer a linux system.
Watch the I Learn Linux Video Tutorials to learn how to work with several Linux distributions. These Linux videos show you how to: install Linux, run Linux commands at the Linux command line prompt, how to work as a different Linux user types, and how to run Linux system administration commands.
