So I've got this working in a 10.04 ubuntu OS in bash where I can run:
$ gedit app/file.rb
bash opens that file with gedit but it is tied up.
How can I make my earlier command equivalent to
$ gedit app/file.rb & by default.
If it helps here is a copy of my .bashrc file from the 10.04 OS : http://pastie.org/4687219
