Opening a Large Number of PDB’s a few at a Time

I sometimes find it convenient to open a large number of pdb files for visualization a few at a time (to check alignment, bond orders…). And I had originally had a bit of trouble coming up with an easy way to do this. I imagine this is somewhat ubuntu/gnome specific, but I thought it might be helpful to some folk:

ls *.pdb|xargs -n 10 gnome-terminal –disable-factory -x /opt/bin/vmd -nt -m
