I am trying to spawn a shell outside emacs, not in a buffer.
I have tried (start-process "firefox" nil "firefox"), wich does start a firefox process outside emacs, but when i tried (start-process "bash" nil "/bin/bash") nothing seems to happen.
(start-process "firefox" nil "firefox")
(start-process "bash" nil "/bin/bash")
Because bash it is not the GUI program. Start your terminal emulator instead like
(start-process "xterm" nil (executable-find "xterm"))
Required, but never shown
