Ctrl Alt Delete What?


Hey everyone,
Real quick do I go about force quitting a program in Linux (specifically KDE) if it looks like it has stopped responding?

Well, from KDE, you could use the KDE System Guard, find the offending process, select it and then click on the Kill button. You could also use KDE System Guard to find out what the PID (process ID) value of the offending program is and from the CLI (as root), issue "kill PID" where PID is the actual process ID value.
