I'm running RH 9.0 Gnome and would like to add an icon that launches a script.
All my script does is launch a bunch of xterms which themselves run other scripts, like this:
xterm -e ./eth.script &
xterm -e ./serial.script &
xterm -e ./secondary.memory.script &
xterm -e ./monitor.script &
xterm -e ./parallel.script &
The problem is the xterms open, but then close immediately.
When typed out from a terminal, the windows stay open and execute their respective scripts, so there's no problem with the subscripts. I've tried "exec", "suspend", not putting the last xterm in bg, with no luck. I don't know Gnome at all, what option am I missing from the "Add launcher" option when adding an icon that will keep the windows open?
