    Unhappy Terminal closes when switching windows

    I'm having trouble with the terminal window closing when I switch to another window (eg internet browser, OfficeLibra, pdf viewer etc). This is annoying, because I'm running Octave, which runs from within the terminal, so I lose my work whenever I go to check something on the internet, or refer to a document.

    Is this a known feature of the terminal I can turn off, or is it something that I need to fix? I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 on an LG E500 laptop.

    Any help appreciated! For now, I'm running a work around using the Terminator application to launch Octave.

    Is it only doing this when you run octave, or can you just open a terminal window then something else and the term closes?

    If always, have you tried just using another terminal program? There are many options.

    Odd problem... Never heard of that happening.
    My very own riot?

    It happens for the terminal when octave is not running too.

    Thanks for the suggestion - I have been using "Terminator" as an alternative, but on principle would like to get the thing fixed
