Depends on what you mean. Assuming you want to start a program Foo and a program Bar from one script, find how you would start the programs from the command line and then write a script such as:
- Code: Select all
(foo </dev/null &>/dev/null &)
(bar </dev/null &>/dev/null &)
You can find how you would start the programs from the command line by looking at the entry in your menu (at least on Cinnamon and MATE you can edit menu entries to look at what command is run for starting the applications).
