xfce4-terminal

i want to launch a terminal and then run a command inside it and have it stay open.

I've tried this

xfce4-terminal -H -x ls

and

xfce4-terminal -H -e ls

but terminal never stays open with output of command displayed. 

shouldn't this work?

for some reason this works like i expect.  launches a terminal and runs the ssh command and stays open

xfce4-terminal -e "ssh pi@192.168.1.7"

Yes. Odd that it doesn't for you.

What version of xfce4-terminal are you running?

xfce4-terminal -V

And what are the contents of your ~/.config/xfce4/terminal/terminalrc file?

Re: xfce4-terminal

It seems to work :

xfce4-terminal -H --command 'yourcommand' &

I tried it with the 'df' command ('xfce4-terminal -H --command df &'), and it starts a xfce4-terminal with the output of 'df' in it. The terminal stays open.
