    Default Opening A Terminal using QProcess

    Dear Friends

    I want to open a terminal in LINUX from within QT application !
    I am trying this through QProcess
    ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    QProcess process(this);
    process.setWorkingDirectory("./Grid/");
    process.start("gedit gcf.dat");

    /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    But I can't see any file is opening for editing in LINUX...What am I missing in this !

    Hi,

    can you post the entire code?
    The QProcess::start() method returns immediatly then the QProcess instance must not go out of scope.

    To verify the correct start of new process you must catch QProcess::started() and QProcess::error() signals.

    You can also use QProcess::waitForStarted()

    I can't!!!
