Temple Run Background

How do I run a program in the background of a shell, with the ability to close the shell while leaving the program running? Lets say my UI is having problems or for some reason, I need to boot up a program from the terminal window, say, nm-applet: nm-applet When it's started, it occupies the foreground of the terminal window. Is there any simple way to run the program in the background without needing to leave the terminal open or have it occupy the whole terminal? On that note, I did find a way to run programs from the terminal and have it allow for other inputs, by appending an ampersand ( &) to the command as such: nm-applet & But this isn't much use as any processes started in the terminal are killed once the terminal is closed. I've recently come to like setsid.

Jobs that don

It starts off looking like you're just running something from the terminal but you can disconnect (close the terminal) and it just keeps going. This is because the command actually forks out and while the input comes through to the current terminal, it's owned by a completely different parent (that remains alive after you close the terminal).

An example: setsid gnome-calculator I'm also quite partial to disown which can be used to separate a process from the current tree. You use it in conjunction with the backgrounding ampersand: gnome-calculator & disown I also just learnt about spawning subshells with parenthesis. This simple method works: (gnome-calculator &) And of course there's nohup as you mentioned. I'm not wild about nohup because it has a tendency to write to /nohup.out without me asking it to. If you rely on that, it might be for you. Nohup gnome-calculator And for the longer-term processes, there are things like screen and other virtual terminal-muxers that keep sessions alive between connections. These probably don't really apply to you because you just want temporary access to the terminal output, but if you wanted to go back some time later and view the latest terminal activity, screen would probably be your best choice.

The internet is full of screen tutorials but here's a simple quick-start:. Here's the two ways I'd go with.

No module named pyinstaller. Firstly, not running it from a terminal; hit Alt+ F2 to open the run dialog, and run it from there (without &). From a terminal, run nm-applet & But do NOT close the terminal yourself.

That is, do not hit the X-button to close, and do not use File - Exit from its menubar. If you close the terminal that way, it will send a HUP (Hang UP) signal to the bash running within, which in turn will send the HUP signal to all its children (which is why nohup works in this case). Instead, exit the shell by running exit or hitting Ctrl+ D. Bash will then disown its children, then exit, leaving the background processes still running. And when bash exits, the terminal has lost its child process, so it will close too. Doing it all at once: nm-applet & exit.
