Windows like Task Manager and Picture and Fax Viewer


Hi everyone!

I just switched from WinXP to openSuse 10.2.

I found a Linux equivalent for almost every application I frequently use

But ...

1.) Is there a Windows like Task Manager (Running Applications, Processes, CPU-Usage etc.) - one I can call when an application or process is frozen.
I obviously could use the console to determine the pid and kill it but I find that a little inconvenient. Task Manager may not be a proper name for what I'm looking for in Linux environment. By googling I only found thinks like Kompose or KXDocker.

2.) I loved the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer and I'd be happy to get something similar for Linux - A simple picture viewer which lets me browse trough the pictures / rotate them or start a slideshow (Fullscreen).

I forgot to post that I'm using KDE

Do you think it's gonna work with the KDE as well?

Ok, the imageviewer shouldn't be an issue anymore. Don't know why I didn't find one before.

But thanks to you I found a nice page: http://linuxappfinder.com/graphics/imageviewers

I may even find the Task Manager ...

Marvelous!

I think I'll use gwenviewer and KDE System Guard for now. The funny thing: those apps were already pre-installed sry

Can I configure the System Guard to start when pressing ctrl+alt+entf? So far the system shuts down upon pressing this combination.

There is an applet called Gnome Menu that will create a Gnome entry on the KDE start menu and that's where I get to my gthumb program.
