This One is Really Simple


I want to be able to start a process in a shell, then close the shell and have the process continue running. I am trying to run TeamSpeak at the moment and used the following command...

./TeamSpeak &

It runs TeamSpeak and the shell gives me a prompt so I can start doing other things... however, if the shell gets closed, so does TeamSpeak.

1) Is this because TeamSpeak is running as a child of the shell?
2) How do I fix this?

Your best shot would be using a program which does just like windows run... I use gnome-run myself with blackbox. It's pretty neat:

Thanks for the help!

You mean to tell me that there is no way to detatch a process and have it run after closing a shell or logging out, except by using 3rd-party software?

or instead of running simply :
./TeamSpeak
use nohup instead :
nohup TeamSpeak

My pleasure I am not really sure if that would be possible. I think it depends more of the application itself to keep running once it started. If you take apache as example, you start it with:

apachetl start

And you can close the terminal whenever you please and apache will keep running until you tell it to stop (apachetl stop). Depending of your desktop manager, this application (run) might be available, as gnome or kde. Using lighter desktops as Blackbox (my case) it's done by using a third part application (as gnome-run or bbrun), I think(?)
