turning off limewire...


Hello!
When ever I start limewire, the only way I can turn it off is by ctl+alt+bksp. The program won't turn itself off, nor does it register in the "process listing" tab of the GNOME system monitor.

How can I stop LimeWire gracefully?

thanks in advance,

doug

Well, opening a teriminal and typing "killall LimeWire" might work. However, it's in the preferences like this.

Tools -> Options -> Shutdown

Once there, select "Shutdown Immediately" and it should close out just fine. Hope this helps.

Whew!
No wonder I couldn't figure it out intuitively. LimeWIre could certainly use some attention from a usabilty perspective, since even after going to "Tools -> Options -> Shutdown", clicking on Shutdown calls a popup window where the buttons cannot be seem until the popup window is maximised. And it still didn't work.

The "killall LimeWire" command did, tho.

thanks again,
doug

rm -rf limewire

would work better

p.s. thats a joke

you'd probably like other programs better than limewire, as it is crapola ...
most prefer giFT, and me personally i like dcgui-qt

I like it because it gets me fast and stable downloads. Other than that it's confusing unless you're like me and love digging into preferences all the time. Remember the killall command for it will save you from a restart when your GUI freezes and you have to press alt + ctrl + F1-6. A couple days ago I opened Totem and since it couldn't play the file (since I deleted it) it errored and locked GNOME up except for the mouse. I just hit alt+ctrl+F6 then logged in and typed killall totem and hit alt+ctrl+F7 and went back to business as usual in GNOME.
