How to restart enlightenment session?


Hi.

Could someone give an advice how to restart hanged enlightenment session with console? (after Ctrl+Alt+F2)

Ctrl+alt+backspace newer works for me.
So search for something like /etc/init.d/gdm restart but for e17.

Thank.

mhh....
I start enlightenment with
exec /usr/bin/enlightenment_start
in .xinitrc

So i changed to the another terminal (ctrl+alt+f2) and did
pkill enlightenment
(it thats not it do a 'ps aux | grep light' and kill that ) and then:
startx
started it again.


If you start it from -say- gdm do
/etc/init.d/gdm stop
/etc/init.d/gdm start
Like usual.

There is also "enlightenment_remote" but i never had to deal with it (so don't know what "exactly" it does)
