Windows GUI you are used to is exactly that: a GUI created specifically for Windows. A Linux installation does run in a terminal. Tasks you are used to having menu entries for, such as loading packages, can be accomplished with their commands, ie. 'library()'. Have you tried a simple plot command? This should automatically open the default graphics device (X11). For a GUI under Linux, you have a number of choices including (X)emacs+ESS; JGR; RKward; and, of course, RCmdr. See the 'R GUI Projects' page on your favourite CRAN site.

Hope this helps.
