Why am I not able to have parallel
gnome-terminals on my server while I can on my client.
Here is a test that illustrates the problem.
#!/bin/bash # this is the parent script gnome-terminal --command "./left.sh" gnome-terminal --command "./right.sh" #!/bin/bash echo "this is the left script" read -p "press any key to close this terminal" key #!/bin/bash echo "this is the right script" read -p "press any key to close this terminal" key
When I run this on a regular ubuntu desktop (maverick) I see two terminals. When I run this on a maverick server at a server farm, the second window does not appear until after I close the first one. I am using tightvncserver to view the server desktop.
