If I have a terminal open in X-window, I can start a GUI app from the terminal. If I give Ctrl+C, the GUI app closes and you get back the prompter in the terminal so you can write commands again.
For example: If I run
gedit, it starts but it doesn't return control to that console so I cannot reuse it for other commands, If I want to regain control I need to do Ctrl+C, but that closes the GUI app. I need the GUI app to keep running but also to use further the console to start other apps or run other commands.
How to start a X-window app from terminal console, without leaving that console occupied solely by that app?
