How do I keep the terminal open after a command terminates? Specifically I want to run screenfetch in Eterm and stop it from terminating so that screenfetch is embedded in my wallpaper.

Either invoke eterm with the --pause option, so that it will wait for a key to be pressed before exiting; or invoke screenfetch from a shell running in that terminal, so that the shell will continue running after screenfetch has exited.

I actually made a shell script to keep it running
