CTRL+ALT+DEL Equivalent?


Hey, I'm running Suse 9.1 and KDE 3.2 - if I try to load a website that has a TON of huge pictures on it and the machine freezes up (just about - mouse still moves, but choppy and nothing will work), is there something I can push to quit the process? I read about the command to type at the terminal, but it's faster to just hard restart then to wait for it to open.
Thanks!

ctrl+alt+backarrow (not the 4 direction arrows but your backspace button)

FYI, there is no need to restart the entire system, just X. the above command will restart X for you.

You could also xkill the frozen app much faster than restarting KDE. What browser are you using?

There isn't even a need to kill the X if you just ctrl+alt+Fx to a spare console and kill the program through kill/killall/whatever.

I'm using Firefox (only because gmail doesn't support Konqueror)

Thanks everybody!!

alt-F4 will send a close command. try that first. for a ctrl alt del type thing press ctrl-esc it will bring up a graphical ps table.

one more thing. you can press ctrl alt and any F key from F2 to F6. then log in again as the same user. you can do it the command line way from there (use ps ax|grep 'prog name' for the PID number then kill PID). I would do this if you were doing something important. to go back type logout then press ctrl alt F7.

control+alt+escape brings up a little skull and crossbones in KDE. whatever window you click on will be killed. but don't click on the desktop background or on the kicker, because you will have a horribly confused machine that you will have to restart KDE on.

gmail is very picky about what browser you use. i can not use Opera either firefox works, IE works, but i have yet to find any other brower that does with gmail. its the #1 reason my gmail account currently sits unused.
