You'll have to bare with my my Linux terminology is pretty bad. When I say virtual terminal I'm talking about when you press ctrl+alt+ a function key (F1-F12). I think they are called virtual terminals.
So I found this snippet that allows you to start an X application in another terminal.
/usr/bin/xinit /opt/someAppFolder/SomeApplication -- :1
I found it in a form that allows you to run Steam in another terminal so you can easily switch out of your full screen games back to your desktop.
But what I want to do is from my desktop terminal (tty7) launch a application (that does not require X) in another terminal. I know I can switch to another terminal, login, then run the app. But can I write a script to do that? So all I need to do is click a shortcut?
