End Task ?


Is there an END TASK function in LInux ?
CTR ALT DLT was in WIndowz.

Thank you.


P.S. I'm on Mandrake ( under KDE )

look up the command:

kill

that will allow you to end a program (and much more too..)

well you can use ps -aux|less in the terminal and find the pid of the progam and type kill PIDnumber where the PIDnumber is the program identification number you wish to kill, or there is something called xkill where if a graphical program crashes you can open up a terminal and type xkill and your mouse will turn into a square like target box and you click anywheres in the window that crashes and it will leave....just a couple of ways of killing stuff

You can usually get to xkill by <CTRL>+<ALT>+<ESC> to

Also, if it's installed you can use pkill... which will allow you to kill a process by name rather than PID ...

if you want to stop a program that isn't locked up but just stalls for some reason you can use
control+c or in perl I think it is control+d

If you're running KDE, then you can get to a very Windowsesque tool by pressing CTRL+ALT+ESC. If you're not running KDE, you can still use the app - it's called K Process Manager and funnily enough, the command is kpm.

lol, here's a good one... If you've got the skull and crossbones cursor, the one used to click on an app to close it, don't click on the app's name in the K-bar because you'll kill the k-bar!
