In Linux Mint 16 and 17, there is a small bug in gnome-do. Well, techincally it is in a file called gnome-terminal.desktop

Searching for terminal in gnome-do in Cinnamon environment gives no results for gnome-terminal. The first entry is usually Printers. This is caused because of an omission in the gnome-terminal.desktop file.

Open terminal by searching through start menu:

locate gnome-terminal.desktop

You will usually find it at: /usr/share/applications/gnome-terminal.desktop

sudo nano /usr/share/applications/gnome-terminal.desktop

Find the line that says:

OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity;

To that list add X-Cinnamon so it will read.

OnlyShowIn=X-Cinnamon;GNOME;Unity;

Save the file and log out. Once you login again, terminal should appear on top of Gnome-do search as soon as you type t.
