Running program in GUI opens term window
I am pretty new to Linux and primarily work with the CLI. At home I just installed a machine running Debian Sarge with XFCE. I was wondering about launching programs.
When I open some programs (like Firefox) the program opens and that's it. But if I launch other programs (like gaim), from either command line or file manager, it opens and maintains a terminal window. How can I open apps without them relying on a terminal window?
If this is an absurd question, forgive me, I tried searching for it, but didn't find anything (probably due to my choice of keywords or lack thereof)
