Starting a program so it opens in a new terminal
 
If I'm starting a (generally GUI) program from a terminal in GNOME, can I start it so it opens in a new terminal and I can carry on working in the one I'm in? Fed up of starting a program, then having to open a new terminal and navigate back to the directory to carry on working.

You can launch the program in background by adding "&".
Example :
Code:

gedit&
That way you can continue working in your current terminal.
