This almost works perfectly! Could you modify your answer to have 1 slight tweak -- combine the two answers so the combination is impervious to other background commands launched from the same shell: ( cmd1 & ; cmd 2 & ; cmd 3 & ; wait ) && thing_to_do_after Also, your second answer blocks on cmd3, but not on cmd2 and cmd1.

comment How can I determine what gnome desktop number a gnome terminal is connected to?
Preferably. Otherwise I can compile some code and have that return a number on the command line. The problem with compiling code is external dependencies. We have an old Linux environment and people always post code that depends on new APIs.

wow. If I had root permissions, I'd definitely try this out.
