xterm

Tech Computer Center logo

If you are running under the X Window System on a Unix workstation, the xterm command starts up a new window that acts like a terminal.

To start up a new xterm window:

  1. Type this command at a shell prompt:
        xterm&
  2. You will get a new window on your display. It should display a shell prompt.
  3. To use the new window, move the mouse cursor into the window. You can now type shell commands in this window.
