Is there anyway, within Linux, to open a terminal or perform a terminal command (such as executing a script) without actually opening the terminal window. What i'd like to do is be able to execute a script from the terminal without the user knowing.
Alternatively is there a shortcut or method to make the terminal window transparent. I know I could create a start up process to run the command, but this would involve opening the terminal window and alerting the user.
Any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
