A new process session

  • The process will be launched using a wrapper script that will create a new process session

  • Job control is available

  • stdin, stdout, stderr will be available in "Console View", tty will not be available

An xterm process session (xterm must be available in the system)

  • The process will be launched using xterm that will create a new process session

  • The process may manage its subprocesses if termination signals are received, but "Terminate all spawned processes..." option can be used to kill all subprocesses when the parent process ends or is terminated

  • Job control is available

  • tty, stdin, stdout and stderr will be available in xterm, the stdout, stderr can be redirected to "Console View" using "Redirect xterm output..." option
