I'm getting pretty used to my debian installation, all I can say after having a casual interest in linux, I finally see why its so amazing. But I have a few small problems.
If I start an application from a terminal, how can I seperate the two. What I mean is... If I run
The terminal cannot be used for anything else until I type controle-c, which also happens to kill gaim
Also, If I have a script
#gav's first shell script
#loads some programs on boot
echo "Gav's startup script ran"
echo "Starting X Server"
echo "Starting Gaim"
1) Where can I put 'sh script.sh' so that I can run it at boot? or even better at login of user gav
2) When I run the script from a terminal
I can get X to start, but gaim doesn't. What am I doing wrong?
lastly, how can I flag 'ls' to show one page of results at a time, so it wont run over the top of the terminal
How can I use a photo avatar with gaim
