Anyone, pointers, tutorials?

minimizing (terminal) window from command line
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 31, 2014
Geek question be prepared...
I use Ubuntu and sometimes OSX. I took a stupid geek habit with OSX, I wrote a little command line script to be able to minimize my Terminal window with a command. I can do that fairly easily with OSX because I can invoke an AppleScript code directly from the command line with the command osascript. In real terms what does it mean? I dont need the mouse to minimize my term window, I type the name of my script and "swoosh" the term minimizes.
Sorry for the long intro, here comes my question: can I do the same with Ubuntu?
What I mean is, let's assume I am logged in, Gnome is launched, etc. I have an open Terminal window (inside Gnome), can I write a script that will actually minimize the terminal window (not close nor kill the window -> only minimize it)?
I am actually clueless bc. obviously I cannot use Apple script...
I dont even know what language I can use for the script (?), Bash will not be able to act on a window insode Gnome
Opening gedit from a terminal window
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 24, 2008
In Ubuntu I want to start gedit from the terminal without having the terminal keep monitoring the process so I can continue to use that terminal for other commands. i.e., I want to launch gedit and have it detached from the tty. You can sort of do this with:
...but then you can't feed gedit any paramaters, e.g.,
$ gedit& somefile.py
doesn't work, neither does
$ gedit somefile.py&
$ 'gedit somefile.py'&
You can always hit Ctrl-z to background the process which almost does what I want it to do, but the extra step for this shouldn't be necessary if you don't want it. How would you make this happen, could I make a shell function that forks it in some way?

Hi, this seems like such a simple problem, but I've got no idea how to do it. Basically, what I'm trying to do is:
- Log in to SSH
- Run test.sh by any means
- Quit SSH, but have test.sh still running on remote computer
Any help would be much appreciated!
Opening firefox in new window from terminal
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 15, 2010
I like to alias my firefox commands so I can open up mutiple pages at once. This works great. firefox "www.google.ca" "www.yahoo.ca"&
But if I have firefox already up and running it will open as tabs of the firefox I already have running. How can I open the multiple pages in a new window in this case?
- Using -no-remote could work, but I would have to make a whole different firefox profile for each set of pages, not really a solution.
- Also tried setting it to a particular display and it opened as a tab again. ie. firefox "www.google.ca" -display=":0.0"
