This is quite an interesting thing I noticed, for instance:
I use Atom Editor and I call it via my Terminal using:
and press Enter, which triggers the Editor and also make the terminal cursor point to the new line; making it (Terminal) free for further command line utilities.
However, when in use RhythmBox using
rhythmboxas terminal command, it tends to work on the foreground (I guess) and keeps the terminal occupied till I close Rhythmbox or use CTRL+C.
I tried this with
texmaker too and it performs similar thing as Rhythmbox. I know that
& will take the process on the background but is there a logical explanation for some applications as mentioned here?
Any hacks or tips so that I can learn how to tweak things like this?
I try using CTRL+Z on the above mentioned applications and the apps then gray out and become unresponsive and I have to force quit on them
