Hello everyone,

im working with suse 11.3. When i try to open a pdf document with envince using the ampersand after it

evince mydoc.pdf &

the proccess does not go to the background and i have to use "Ctrl-Z" and then "bg" to continue using the terminal. With other programs like emacs the ampersand works correctly. Does someone know why do i have this error and how could i repair it?
I'm trying too to use this in a shell script, is there any other method to tell the shell script to put the evince-job in the background without using the ampersand?
