How to show when my BG job is finished?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



One of you guys probably knows this and uses it, I know it can be done, I just forgot the command to do it:

I want to start a command like f.i. "updatedb &" and then have the OS signal me when its done.

I remember it was something like:

"updatedb && msg 'updatedb is finished, go for it!' "

I then got a GUI screen showing the message.

If anyone remenbers the correct sequence, I'd be grateful.
