KDE Debris

After running a KDE application in Xfce, and then closing it when finished, it leaves several pieces of debris running and using 100 to 120 megs of memory until you kill or terminate them.

Is there anyway to automatic a process to kill/terminate this rubbish?


BTW, not all KDE apps do this. KPatience does not, but Gwenview does, etc.

GNOME programs are the same -- they always leave gconf running.

Not that I have tried it, but this should work:

<kde-program> && killall <kde-debris>
(Assumes successful termination)
