Yes, that works in the Geany VTE inside Geany.
My issue is that when Geany is set to run a script in the default terminal, it
does not work in LXTerminal, but it DOES work if I set it to use some other
For instance. In Geany, Edit > Preferences > Tools > Terminal, replace
"x-terminal-emulator" with "xterm" (xterm must be installed).
Then, if I execute a bash script using Geany Build > Execute, then a Xterm
window pops up and the script executes as expected.
Also, this procedure works perfectly on other distros that I have installed.
In Kubuntu, my scripts execute just fine in Konsole, the KDE default terminal
It's just that here in Lubuntu, it does not work with LXTerminal, the default
I am trying to find out if this is the expected way for LXTerminal to operate.
If it is, then I'll drop the issue. If is is not, then I'll file a bug report.

In Geany itself, in Edit>Preferences>Tools>Terminal, you can tell
Geany what terminal emulator to use.
The default setting was "x-terminal-emulator -e "/bin/sh %c"".
I'm probably way off base, but I changed
Edit>Preferences>Tools>Terminal from the default
x-terminal-emulator -e "/bin/sh %c"
x-terminal-emulator -e "/bin/sh -c %c" (NOTE addition of -c parm)
and it seems to work. For example,
1. I type this into the editor:
/bin/echo 'here'; sleep 5; /bin/echo 'here again';
2. Select that text.
3. Go to Edit>Commands>Send Selection to Terminal
The shell commands executed properly in the "Terminal output" at the bottom of
