[Gmsh] Generating a triangular surface mesh

Hello all,

I've recently discovered gmsh and would like to use it to generate a
very simple mesh, representing the surface of a unit cube via
triangular elements.
However, when I attempt to do this via constructing a cube from points
and lines and then surfaces and then generating a mesh.  However, the
resulting mesh seems to have a lot of line and point type elements.

Is there a way to restrict it to triangular elements only?
