I am learning to use dired for file operations. I found out how to launch a program associated with the extension using eg

(require 'dired-x)
(setq dired-guess-shell-alist-user
      '(("\\.pdf$" "evince")))

The inconvenience of this is that I have to close the program before I can resume working in emacs. Is there a possibility to launch the pdfviewer evince and be able to work in emacs without closing the pdfviewer?
