Trouble executing multiple commands simultaniously
I have a little problem when scripting (BASH shell). You see, what I am trying to do is write a script that begins several apps at once. As it stands, a simple script of mine that begins xmms, gmplayer and aterm might look something like this:
Now, what happens when I run this in X , as you vets might imagine, is xmms starts, but the gmplayer and aterm won't, at least until I kill xmms. What I'd really like, though, is for all three apps to start at once. Any help with this would be met with much gratitude. Thanks in advance!
P.S. I also happen to be looking for a way to set different volumes in alsamixer to certain values whenever X starts. If anyone can help with this, thanks!

Write xmms& instead of xmms

if you're lookin to have these apps start at X loading, the WM you are using will more than likely have some file it reads at start where you can put stuff like:
xmms &"I am not an alcoholic, alcoholics go to meetings"
