Default Starting something from the gnome-terminal

When I start something from the gnome-terminal, then exit the
terminal, that something also exits. How can I prevent that from
happening?

For example:
Open the gnome-terminal
Type something like
$ SomeApp --SomeParameter=Something &
$ exit

What happens is that when exiting the gnome-terminal, ”SomeApp” is
also terminated. I need to know how to start something from the
gnome-terminal that is not ”connected” to the terminal at all.
Any ideas?


Kind regards

The traditional way to do it is to pass it as an argument to nohup
(for 'no hangup'):

nohup SomeApp --SomeParameter=Something &

this will also redirect all output to a file (nohup.out by default).

An alternative may also be to install "screen". This gives the option
of detaching and also reattaching to a screen session.
See some example usage here:

As has been noted, screen is a good candidate for this.

Also there is tmux &, best of all in my opinion, byobu.

Cheers,

Phil...

byobu uses tmux (by default, at least on ubuserver) or screen as a backend.

Thank you all for replying. I am sure that solved my problem, although
I didn't test anything yet. Waiting for an application to crash first…
(which I guess won't take very long since most things crash now and
then since I installed Ubuntu 12.04; my crappy nVidia graphics card
driver is probably the reason for that) :P


Kind regards
