Running gedit in background

view story

http://askubuntu.com – So I've got this working in a 10.04 ubuntu OS in bash where I can run: $ gedit app/file.rb bash opens that file with gedit but it is tied up. How can I make my earlier command equivalent to $ gedit app/file.rb & by default. If it helps here is a copy of my .bashrc file from the 10.04 OS : http://pastie.org/4687219 (HowTos)
