Abundant use of Xkill


Here's what I did, any suggestions as to how to correct this "mistake" in the future will be gladly considered. Being new to Linux (mandrake bamboo 9.1, running KDE window manager)
I used "xkill" to terminate a window that had stopped responding.
in the process, I accidentally terminated my taskbar. Being a former windows user, this made me very uncomfortable, so I CTRL+ALT+DEL my way to a restart......... how do I get the taskbar up and going again without a restart??
Thanks, and all flames will be humbly accepted.....

We don't flame our newbs Welcome to LQ

ALT F2 I believe brings up the 'run' dialogue, then type:
kicker

This should launch that 'taskbar' you are looking for.

HTH

Cool

Thanks...... needed that, reading the HOWTOs and MAN pages gets a little long when only looking for a single command

I think something like that is tacked up only to 'experience' as I don't think it's likely in any 'standard' man page

Cool
