I want to run a command (assumedly using dbus-send) that opens a new tab in a gnome-terminal session and runs a command. Is this possible?
I believe gnome-terminal doesn't have a dbus interface. Trustin Lee has a blog post about Opening a New tab/ gnome-terminal via a shell script, I added an extra line to make use of xdotool to 'fake' the key input, I suppose you can use this approach.
Please note: I haven't tried this myself as I'm supposed to be working in office ;)
