Full Version: Q: Queue It Up, Quickly And Quietly
OESF Portables Forum > Everything Else > Archived Forums > Distros, Development, and Model Specific Forums > Zaurus - Everything Development > Linux Applications

Here is a handy script that I wrote to make it convenient to start X applications from a terminal, which is really handy on the Zaurus, as well as being useful on a normal PC running X windows.

The script is as follows, and is attached:

# Queue it up, quickly and quietly
# Runs a program in the background and suppresses all output.
# Particularly useful for starting X applications from
# a terminal.
# Useage: q some-application some parameters
#     ex: q dillo myfile.html
# Written by Armagon, 2007-04-05
# You are welcome to use this however you see fit.

$* > /dev/null 2>&1 &

After downloading the attachment, you will want to install it (as root):
cp q.txt /usr/bin/q
chmod +x /usr/bin/q

Very handy, thanks a bunch !!!
