I’m working on a dialog manager and I’m stuck at the part where I need
to launch a terminal process and also kill it.
This is what I have so far.
@terminal_pid = IO.popen(‘gnome-terminal’)
Process.kill :SIGTERM, @terminal_pid.pid if !@terminal_pid.nil?
That method seems to work for stuff such as google-chrome, gcalctool,
pidgin, however it has no effect on gnome-terminal nor gedit.
The Ruby script runs within a terminal window itself so I have no
interest in “kill -9 ‘gnome-terminal’”. I am trying to kill only that
Can anyone explain what is going on or a way of fixing it?
Thank you in advance!
