Description Gunther Gamit 2005-04-17 02:42:07 UTC

Description of problem:
I have a suggestion for the makers of Fedora, everytime I execute a progam that will leave the terminal idle its kinda annoying to see the terminal still hanging like a functioning window in the background, although in the foreground my app is up, I am happy, but the window in the back should minimize itself somewhere, then when i quit the app, the terminal will un-minimize, and give me a working prompt, its just a suggestion:)

But how would it decide to minimize?

maybe the terminal would decide to minimize when it sees there is no commands able to run, and a known executable has been launched.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Launch Gnome-Terminal
2.Type in a command like kwrite /mnt/blah/blah.conf
3.I would'nt know yet, but maybe someday:)

This is the way in which terminal emulators generally work.
