Running a command in a new window
There was a simple way, I thought, of running a command so that it opens in a new xterm window and leaves the original window available to do whatever you want in it. For example, let's say that I am in the /etc directory, and I would like to edit fstab using emacs, so I type:
Is there something else that I can type in that command line so that I get a new command window with emacs in it, and the old window, which is currently in the /etc directory, is available for me to do what I want with it? This is all in a kde enviroment, using the konsole terminal program. I remember doing this in the past, I just can't seem to remember the command and have been unable to locate it using any search engine or my trusty Linux book. Any help is appreciated, and if I figure this out before someone posts I'll be sure to put it here. Thanks.
