how to exit a terminal
Is there a way to exit a terminal (aterm) immediately if I am sued in as root user?

I don`t want to type exit twice, e.g. once to get back to normal user (quit su mode) and then again to exit as normal user.

Kill the window. . ?

killall aterm. . ?

Write a script that finds the process ID of the original user's login shell & kills it. . ?

you can just press Ctrl-D twice

or shut the window with Alt-F4 :)

thanks Ctrl-D twice seems the best, as I sometimes have a few aterms running and killall aterm would nuke them.
