run program with focus


Hello,

In xfce I've set my window manager settings to not shift focus to new windows. I did this because I want new browser and thunderbird windows to open in the background. However, I would like new terminal windows to open in the foreground with focus. Is there any command to run a program with focus OR to run a program without focus?

Thank you!
