How to list all other users' program which are running background?
 
I want to find all the programs that are not ran by myself?
I tried using
Code:

w
. But it only list the users who log in the current computer. I want to find the user and the program which are running background.
My user name is
Code:

zwang10
.

He said he wanted all processes not run as himself.
Code:

ps aux | grep -v zwang
Or just get rid of the grep entirely to show all processes.

Thanks. I tried your code. But I got USER of
Code:

root
and
Code:

gdm
. I do not want to see
Code:

root
(and I do not know what is
Code:

gdm
)

sorry, i probably shouldn't be posting while buzzed from this porter beer. Right, just ps aux without grep'ing for username.

Yes, that's what you asked for...all processes not owned by you. The only processes that remain will be the ones running as root, and the many other "service" users. What is it you want?

For example, there is an user whose name is mike. And mike is running his program in this public computer background (I am logging in this computer). How can I see all the programs he is running background?

Then change the grep to search for mike
Code:

ps aux | grep mike
Code:

man ps
man grep
