If I open a program, like Firefox, from the terminal then that program will get the focus of the GUI. Can I somehow open it so that it will run in the visual background and not pop up, blocking any current program I am working with?
My problem is that I use karma test runner which is run every time I edit my code. Whenever that is done karma launches a browser which pops up in front of everything else on the screen which can be quite annoying.
I am using Ubuntu 13.04.
