Hello, mint users~
Let's suppose I know how to open a file-browser from Mint. When I search for a file-browser in app menu, it comes up. Simple as that.
But, I'd love to know what the corresponding process name. I know it's caja but it's not important. It's just an example. I want to know a general way to figure out under what name of process is an application running.
In this case, I think, I can rephrase my question to 'how to check among all the running processes is the most lastest one, in terms of start_time?
I come up with an multi-piped command like below:
watch 'ps -ef | sort -k 7'
It's half successful and half failed. The problem is, although it sorts processes in order of start_time, there are so many processes with start_time of 00:00:00 and those with the same start_time are secondly alphabetically sorted by process names.
In a nutshell, the start_times are not precise enough to get what I want.
To recap my questions,
1. Is what I want to do possible?
2. Do you know how? (it's feasible even with my command above if start_time more accurate. Do you know how to make it so?
3. Or do you come up with better ways for the result I want?
