I'm trying to double click on a file that does this:
#!/bin/bash #Mount USB Jump, Copy files to it, Unmount it. [open terminal (so that I can see what 's going on)] pmount /dev/sdc JUMP sleep 2s cp -p -u source/path/ destination/path/ read -p "Press enter to unmount Jump or ctrl c to abort." pumount /dev/sdc [close terminal]
The two lines I don't know how to write are [open terminal] and [close terminal] Anyone knows how to do this?
Edit: Many thanks folks, I bundled your input together and eventually got there.
I double-click on the .sh file that says: 'terminal -hold -e /path/to/JumpBkp.sh' and it opens a terminal and gives me the whole rundown onscreen.
It was cool to receive so much input in so little time. Many thanks again.
2nd Edit: I've come up with an option that makes it even sweeter. I post it in case anyone bumps into this thread.
terminal -hold -e bash '/path/to/JumpBkp.sh'
The 'bash' spares me of that darn: "Warning: Could not find '/path/to/file.sh', starting '/bin/bash' instead. Please check your profile settings."
