I use evince to view a good number of tiff files. I have written a quick
little script to help me associate the tiff files with various database
records. This script runs as part of larger API that runs in a very minimal
xwindows system ( no desktop just twm as a window manager.) As it stands now
I view the file with system("evince file.tiff"); close evince and execute
the script which helps me associate and save the file. I was wondering if
there is a way to for my script to open a terminal while evince is still
open so I can still look at the file while I'm saving it.
I've tried system("evince file.tiff & gnome-teminal --geometry=50x35-0+0");
but then I don't see evince.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
