    Hi.

    If you can stay logged in, you can run commands in the background. To do that, you add an ampersand at the end of the command line.

    Practice with sleep, as below, and you will see that you get the prompt back immediately.

    If you need to logout, there are other mechanisms, one of which is described in man nohup ... cheers, drl
    Code:
    sleep 12 &
    sleep 11 &
    sleep 10 &

    what are you taking about ??? Enlightenment is a desktop Environment like GNOME and KDE...

    Note : i checked a lot of threads where you replied without understanding question... dont do this ...
