What will be the command for open a new terminal window from the current terminal?
I installed xdotool by running
sudo apt-get install xdotool and throw
xdotool key ctrl+alt+t command to open a new terminal window from the current one.But it was not working.
Which command was given to open the terminal window from the current gnome terminal?
This command works just fine
Normally if you want a command to open from the terminal and separate (so it returns to the prompt without having to close the opened program) , you have to use something like this.
gnome-terminal & disown
However the parent terminal seems to detect that the same command is being used so you don't need to do that and
gnome-terminal will suffice. This also seems to happen when running
xfce4-terminal from Xfce's terminal,
konsole from KDE's as well (doesn't seem to work when running
xterm (see also
xterm xterm ) - Running
konsole from Gnome/Unity & Xfce's terminal works as well , but for Xfce's terminal in gnome terminal you need
xfce4-terminal & disown ).
