Force Quit in KDE
 
Is there any force quit command in KDE, similar to Windows' ctrl+alt+del?

ctrl + alt + backspace should kill the xsession.

mattp 03-13-2004 04:12 PM

What is xsession. I need something that will close an app if it is locked up.

Try running "xkill". Gnome 2.4 has this built in - you can force quit a program either from the panel or by clicking the close button of the window in metacity: after a few seconds it'll time out and give you the option of killing the hung app.

Thanks, I'll give it a shot.

If that dosen't work, just 'ps aux' and kill the PID of the application.

a little more dangerous, but for apps and processes that have an easily identifiable name, you could use "killall process_name".

examples:

killall xmms
killall java
killall gkrellm
.

etc...
