Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Certain games like Frozen-Bubble or PySol card games will not close or shut down when either clicking on the x, Alt-F4, ESC...
What's happening? I usually end up logging out and back in to get rid of them.
Using MDK 9.1, KDE desktop.
Now that I looked at that, the output you posted is actually the process info for the grep command your searching with, not the program itself. My guess is that it's running under a differnet name than PySol.
Next time you go to run it try some thing like this:
Before you run do:
ps -ef > before.txt
Then start the program and do:
ps-ef > after.txt
diff before.txt after.txt
The output of that will give you what processes are started when you invoke that program. The diff command just compares the two before and after files and tells you what's diff(ernet)
Thanks Capt. I couldn't get it to work like you said, but after googling around, I found this simple solution:
killall -9 Frozen-Bubble
(Frozen-Bubble is the name of the arcade game that always "froze").
If you are running KDE you could use the CTRL+ESC to get to the KDE process viewer look for the name of the application you want to kill, sometimes there are more than one processess for the app, select it and click on kill.
Alternatively, if your in X, you could XKill the app by running the program xkill or using CTRL+ALT+ESC, then click on the program you want to close.
You can also kill apps from the command line which is what your learning from Capt right now.
