Question last step to make script fully work


Code:
#!/bin/bash -e

#path to select.sh
SelectPath="~/startup-script/"

# Run game.py
gnome-terminal -- sh -c "python3 game.py; bash"

# Wait until the terminal's child exist
wait
 exec "${SelectPath}"./script.sh
only thing left to include now is to make the gnome-terminal that launched the game to close once the game is closed.

Remove ; bash

Actually, most terminal emulators including gnome-terminal have option -e. So you could just
Code:
gnome-terminal -e python3 game.py
Well, I'm getting scolded by gnome-terminal:
Code:
# Option “-e” is deprecated and might be removed in a later version of gnome-terminal.
# Use “-- ” to terminate the options and put the command line to execute after it.
So
Code:
gnome-terminal -- python3 game.py
is it then.

It only troubles the script and has nothing to do with what I'm seeking for.

Then I don't understand what you're seeking for.

Figuratively spoken, once I quit the game.py which closes the game, I want the terminal's child being closed as well.

in other words, once game.py no longer is in use, which means closed, I want the terminal's child (which is the terminal) to be closed.

Try this
Code:
gnome-terminal -- read -p 'Hit Enter ' junk
and you'll see that the terminal window is closed as soon as you hit Enter. So I guess the problem is with the game that doesn't get properly closed.

I get this
Code:
# Error: Failed to execute child process “read”: Failed to execve: No such file or directory
and btw, with what do I have to replace 'junk' with?

Strange. And if you wrap it in a shell call?
Code:
gnome-terminal -- sh -c 'read -p "Hit Enter " _'

Doesn't matter. This variable gets discarded anyway.

Thanks, using
Code:
gnome-terminal -- sh -c "python3 game.py" 'read -p "Hit Enter " _'
exits the child process without even needing to hit enter !

Its unclear what you're trying to do, and why you're calling bash and gnome-terminal from a shell script in the first place. But seems to me you should just add

"python3 game.py" to the second line of "script.sh" and be done with it.

Otherise I'd try...
Code:
#!/bin/bash 
python3 game.py
source $HOME/startup-script/script.sh
