I'm trying to find out how to run a command in the background and then bring it to the foreground later. I'm fed up of tutorials and answers where people state that it's simple, just append
& to the end of the command to get it run in the background. It's working only within a single terminal window. I want to put the command into the background in one terminal and get it back to foreground after reopening the terminal
$ grunt & $ jobs $ + Running grunt &
Of course after closing terminal no one job is found.
$ grunt & disown #the same behavior has: $ setsid grunt & $ jobs $ [nothing] #but ps shows that grunt is working after close terminal, grunt doesn't work
What did I do wrong? Could anybody explain me how to run the command in the background and get it back to foreground.
