open Linux Konsole from Matlab

6 views (last 30 days)
Hello,
on Ubuntu 18.04 shell typing
konsole &
a new window with console opens, as expected.
In Matlab typing
[status, cmdout] = system('konsole &', '-echo')
nothing happens...
The output is:
status =
0
cmdout =
0×0 empty char array
How to open a new console in a new thread from Matlab?
How to hand over even parameters or commands into this new console?
Executing e.g.
[status, cmdout] = system('jedit &', '-echo')
runs as expected. jedit opens and can be operated as usual.
Thanks for your answers

From the man-page of xterm I get this suggestion:
-e program [ arguments ... ]
Which should be applicable to your case?
