This is considered as hi-jacking. You should create a new thread.

I suggest that you look at 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' so in the future your queries provide information that will aid us in diagnosis of the problem/query.

If you are using KDE, press ctrl+ESC and it will open "System monitor" which will allow you to kill any running process.
On GNOME, I have no idea, sorry.

No, it isn't. At best, it's dual posting.

When I responded to the poster the post was in another thread.
I have no idea how this got moved. If a mod did it, then he/she should have indicated such.

The mod apologises ... his only excuse is that moving the
posts was quicker than writing an explanation: the posts
were in an unrelated thread, and I moved them, together
with onebuck's response, to a new thread.



Cheers,
Tink

Hi,

Thanks Tinkster, I thought maybe things were really scrambling for me.

It's been that kind of day, all day long!

Please, for the love of God, do NOT post in SMS language. This includes the use of 'plz' for "please". Also, please capitalize and punctuate correctly.

As far as hanging is concerned, there is a "Force Quit" panel applet that you can use. Just right-click the upper panel next to the Firefox icon and click "Add to Panel". From there, scroll down to "Force Quit" and double-click it. It will have been added.

Then, whenever you run the Warsow game and it hangs, click the Force Quit icon and then select the game's window. This will kill the game's connection with the X server if it is not responding.

The OP asks what to do if an app hangs in fullscreen mode. How is he supposed to click on an icon in a panel? No pannels in fullscreen. Please read carefully.

Hi,

@Kenny_Strawn

I think the way you responded is rather rude. Just as bad as someone who uses abbreviated text speak.

Which is exactly what the OP did!

And about full screen mode: In that case, pressing Alt+F2 and typing "gnome-terminal" will bring up a terminal window, from which you can type "sudo killall warsow" to kill the game.

If you have a hanging fullscreen app, Alt+F2 will not work (especially not on my systems, no Gnome/KDE here). The OP states that even switching to a virtual terminal does not work.

What about Ctrl+Alt+F4 which will kill X and leave you with a dumb terminal? From there, just type:

Code:
startx
to bring X and your desktop environment back again.

Ctrl+Alt+F4 will not kill X, it will bring you to the fourth virtual terminal. As the OP already stated, this does not work.
