NAMEkdeinit_wrapper, kshell, kwrapper - start applications via kdeinit
SYNOPSISkdeinit_wrapper application [arguments] kshell application [arguments] kwrapper application [arguments]
DESCRIPTIONkdeinit_wrapper, kshell and kwrapper start applications via kdeinit. kdeinit_wrapper simply passes application name and arguments to kdeinit. kshell passes application name, arguments, complete environment and current working directory to kdeinit. kwrapper tries to make the application look like it was actually started directly and not via kdeinit. Like kshell it passes application name, arguments, complete environment and current working directory to kdeinit. Additionally it - tries to redirect application output to the console from which kwrapper was started - waits for the application to finish (but does not return its return value) - passes most signals it gets to the process of the started application The signal passing allows you to use Ctrl-C to break the started application or Ctrl-Z to stop it. Note: With the use of kwrapper you will have one more process running and also the signal passing and output redirection may not work properly.
OPTIONSapplication application to start arguments arguments of application to start
