I would like to do something like this:
myCommand runs for variable amounts of time and I would like to go and work on something else until it is done, but I would like to be told (probably with sound but I am open to other ideas) when the command has finished.
I am using Solaris with gnome. So I am using different workspaces. (Why visual queues probably will not work. I also don't want to move that terminal from the workspace that it is currently in).
Also I don't want to use a terminal beep. That comes out of my tower, I would prefer something that comes out of my headphones so as not to annoy my co-workers.
