terminal window show permanently when starting from appfinder [solved]

Hi,

when xfce4-terminal is started on the desktop, the terminal window remains shown after the commands are executed in the window. I want the terminal window to stay shown when I save this command

xfce4-terminal -- command restic -r /home/username/backupNr1 mount mountdir

or just like that

restic -r /home/username/backupNr1 mount mountdir

in a .desktop file and then start it via xfce4--appfinder. How can I achieve this?

Thank You!

Assuming bash, try using:

xfce4-terminal -e 'bash -c "restic -r /home/username/backupNr1 mount mountdir; bash"'

It does work. But I noticed that bash appears a second time before the quotation marks - I mean this.

'bash -c " [...] mount mountdir; bash"'

a second time. Is it syntactically correct?

The second bash command runs the shell again which keeps the window open for further processing.
