amaroK Music Player


I tried using amaroK as a music player but for some reason when I closed it, the music kept on playing.

I tried to turn it off using "kill amaroK" but it said it wasn't a process.

How do I solve this?

Don't feel bad, believe me everyone here has their fair share of "D'oh!!" moments. Me especially.

Just as an aside, if you want to kill a specific process, one option is to open a console session then enter the "top" command. (Top shows you the processes that are running, in descending order of the amount of CPU they're using.) If you see a runaway process, you can kill it by issuing this command
Code:
kill <pid>
where <pid> is the Process ID. The PID column is to the far left in the "top" results. To illustrate, if amorak happened to be process ID 5477, then to kill it you would enter
Code:
kill 5477
Take care when manually killing any processes; if you supply the wrong PID you can crash something that you didn't want. -- J.W.

amaroK loads in the system tray, and when you close the window it stays open in the tray. To fully close the program you need to right click the icon in the system tray and select close. (the tray is down by the clock)
