I have a script that I want to use to open new terminals and type commands in them. A command like
opens a new terminal.
Also, if I do
gnome-terminal -e myprogram1
it will execute myprogram1 in the newly opened terminal. But what if, after myprogram1 completes, I want to execute myprogram2? I cannot do something like
gnome-terminal -e myprogram2
because it will open a new terminal.
Is there a way to specify in the script that I want to execute both
myprogram 2 in the same new terminal? Or would I have to create a new script and do something like
gnome-terminal -e scriptToExecuteMyPrograms1And2
You can accomplish what you want like this:
$ gnome-terminal -e "bash -c '<cmd1>;<cmd2>;exec $SHELL'"
This will open up
<cmd1>, when that’s complete, it will open up
<cmd2>, finally it will leave you at a command prompt
$ gnome-terminal -e "bash -c 'vim;vim;exec $SHELL'"
vim, if I close the 1st
vim, a 2nd
vim is started. When the 2nd one closes I’m left at a terminal prompt.
