Typically, if I want a new terminal on my Windows 7 workstation from another terminal or mc, I have to type start <ENTER>, and I will see a new terminal window running the default shell.
What is the equivalent command in Red Hat Linux 5.3 (and/or Solaris) to create a new terminal window from the command line? I will be entering this command from the shell prompt or mc's command line.
In Windows, if I want to start another terminal and in that terminal, I want to run a program, I can do "start program.exe arg1 arg2". This will create a new terminal window and runs program.exe in that terminal window. I don't have to create a terminal and then in a separate step run the program. How can I do this in Linux?
