Sometimes it is not enought to schedule some scripts in the background to run. In this article I will show you how to make a script to open a terminal, execute some commands and allows you to see the output.
This can be done with the virtual terminal you like the most. Add one of the following lines to a startup script. You can open 5 terminals which exec 5 different commands, by pasting one of this lines 5 times and replacing the /path/to/command with the path for your script)
gnome-terminal -e /path/to/command
konsole -e /path/to/command
If you want to keep your terminal opened after the task is finished, use –noclose for konsole and -hold for gnome-terminal (I don’t remember the flag for xterm right now, sorry.)
$ gnome-terminal -e /path/to/command -hold
$ konsole -e /path/to/command --noclose
