Open your Terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and issue the command below:

man nohup

HTH.

run [ man nohup ] or [ info coreutils 'nohup invocation' ]

without [] ;)

quote:
`nohup' runs the given COMMAND with hangup signals ignored, so that the
command can continue running in the background after you log out.

Can you help with this problem?
