I'd like to start bash from within Total Commander (which itself is running within Wine). Any ideas (if there are any at all) how I could do it?

If you need it to be interactive then run it in a terminal, e.g. gnome-terminal -e bash. Just make sure to have the terminal executable accessible on one of your mapped drives.

I can now start cmd.exe from Totalcmd! How would I start bash? Thanks! – Albus Dumbledore Jun 22 '11 at 12:07
