I'm running a shell
script.sh which is supposed to open terminal and then run some commands in this opened terminal. What happens is that the terminal starts but the following commands are not executed in this terminal. If anyone can please tell me how after openening the terminal through this
script.sh to run in it some other commands.
This is is my
#!/bin/bash gksu -u userA /usr/bin/gnome-terminal PACKAGE_PATH=/home/userA/package1; cd /home/userA/scripts
so the first command
gksu -u userA /usr/bin/gnome-terminal opens a terminal instance, I'm asking how to run the two following commands
cd /home/userA/scripts in this opened terminal instance using the
after applying muru's suggestion this is what I used:
gnome-terminal -x sudo -u userA bash -c 'PPACKAGE_PATH=/home/userA/package1:/home/userA/package2:$PACKAGE_PATH; cd /home/userA/scripts; source varset.sh; bash'
but it is not run in the same sequence I put it.
The first line appears in the terminal is a message which is found in variables.sh (although this should be the third command to run) and the other thing is that none of the variables that should be set using this
varset.sh is set, for example when I use echo $var1 (which is found in variables.sh) is display nothing which means the variables is not set the only thing that works in variables.sh is the echo message displayed.
The second line that appears in the the directory is the terminal working directory which is set to the
The third thing is that this command
PACKAGE_PATH=PACKAGE_PATH=/home/userA/package1:/home/userA/package2:$PACKAGE_PATH which sets the $PACKAGE_PATH variable is not working.
So if anyone could please advise how to run this command in this sequence and to set the variables on the first command and variables in the
varset.sh shell file.
