Iv created a menu item to a program, but instead of just executing the program, I first want it to open a terminal and then execute it from there- how do I go about doing this?

I pasted the command gnome-terminal -e before the address, but it doesnt work

That probably did work, but the thing is, the terminal will close as soon as that program ends, which may have been quite quickly? Also try
gnome-terminal --COMMAND=<program>
