Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Here's the situation: Whilst programming junk, I like to have a couple of terminals open, to different directories, and one running ipython in the source directory. So I'm going to need to run a couple of different commands. I don't want to have to replace my .bashrc.
Yeah, that's what I'm trying to do. Except I'd like to do it from a script (easy) and have each of them execute a separate command (e.g., change directory, start ipython, set some environment variables). I reckon I could switch out the .bashrc before each call, but that seems like the wrong way to do it.
So the problem is to open a new terminal from the command line executing a command and keep it open for interactive usage, right? Take a look at a solution here. You can try to write a function that do the trick or even some aliases, each of them running a specific command.
