run command in new gnome-terminal


I am running redhat 8. When I run this command: "gnome-terminal -e ls" the ls command is executed in the new window but then terminates the window. The same is true when I tried xterm.
In the terminal profile if I select "execute command and restart" the ls command is executed several times and the new window then seemed to be hung.

Hi, if you still haven't figured this out, then .... here it is for myself and others in the future:

Code:
gnome-terminal -x sh -c "ls|less"

I was trying to figure-out how to do this:

Code:
gnome-terminal -x sh -c "cal -y|less"
and in an 'xterm':

Code:
xterm -e "cal -y|less"

To 'sleep' the command:

Code:
xterm -e "cal -y; sleep 10"
or

Code:
gnome-terminal -x sh -c "cal -3; sleep 10"

Hope this helps!

Yes gnome-terminal works but xterm still will not stay on after running the comand. I remembered I got a response from somewhere that this is a bug in gnome. Maybe it works in kde?

I was struggeling with this too. Needed the term to stay open after ssh'ing into another machine. Could not get the term to accept interactive commands so in stead made use of .bashrc to execute custom commands:
if [ "$customcmd" ]; then
$customcmd
fi

export customcmd="echo test" before calling gnome-terminal and then use unset to return to status quo.

Open a default terminal. Right click in it. Mouse over "Profiles" and then "Profile Preferences". Click that. The second tab at the top -- "Title and Command", click that. At the bottom click the box that has the dialog "When command exits" on the left of it and choose "Hold the terminal open". Then close.

Talking

save your command in a bash file. Then run the bash file. So you don't need to edit gnome-terminal profile.

Code:
#!/bin/bash
#file name: run.sh

gnome-terminal -x sh -c "ls -l | less"
Set executable bit and run.
Code:
chmod +x run.sh  [do not run each time]
./run.sh

I've set up a bash script as suggested in the previous post but I have several servers that I want to group together. Any idea how to open multiple tabs instead of several new terminal windows?

Code:
#!/bin/bash

gnome-terminal -x sh -c "ssh server1"
gnome-terminal -x sh -c "ssh server2"
gnome-terminal -x sh -c "ssh server3"

Well, you can right click in the gnome-terminal window and click "Open Tab" a couple times and ssh into each server in each tab. Change between tabs with "alt-1", "alt-2" and "alt-3" if you have three tabs open. This does not work with KDE unless you go through hoops to change the key bindings but it works in Gnome.

To open several tabs in one window I do this:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

gnome-terminal --tab --title="TITLE1" -e "ssh server1" --tab --title="TITLE2" -e "ssh server2"
The option --title is optional, but it's so helpful.
