Very new to linux, although at a previous job I had to work with Unix, so I don't consider myself completely helpless... just impatient.
I'm really taken with the idea of starting programs from the Konsole (assuming "terminal" and "command line" are synonyms here?), but I notice that some, if not all of the progs I'm starting this way are bound to the Konsole window itself, so that if I start 'xmms' to listen to music, the Konsole window must stay open also, or else xmms closes as well. Also, it seems this ties up the Konsole itself also, since while the program is running, the Konsole is unusable and I have to call up another one to do any fun stuff.
Wondering how to get around this, and what this behavior is called.
