Re: lock the window so that the application can run .

Hi,

can you explain, which kind of application you want to run and what you mean by lock?

Are you using a telnet window or a xwindow?

execute your application with "nohup" command to run your application even though u have closed the session .

hope it will help you

Hi,

as vishnu says, you can prevent an application from terminating by using nohup. However only applications, which do not require input from or output to a terminal can be used. When you exit, init will be the father process of this application.

Just a little correction to a remark in a previous reply:
Output generated by a command launched via nohup is stored in the file nohup.out created in curent working dir or $HOME.

Johan,

thanks for pointing to that. Well, maybe you could even get the input from a file, who knows, never tried. But I still would like to know, what Rambo means with locking. Perhaps securing the screen with a password while the programme runs?
