Ubuntu :: Close Terminal, Kill The App That's Running?
May 15, 2010
So, this may have something to do specifically with conky, but I don't understand how sometimes when I run 'conky' from the terminal and then once it loads I close the terminal, it kills conky. But other times, I do the same thing, wait for it to load, and it just keeps running! In both cases, I don't get a "user@computer~:$" prompt back after running 'conky' either. That happens sometimes with other things like gedit too..

I have an instance of Nautilus File Browser that will not close or be killed, and it always opens to the same directory, kdenlive in my home directory. I'm a newbie and have already googled. Rebooting, logging out and in as someone else, then logging back in again as myself doesn't stop it. And, I'm afraid to uninstall Nautilus. I've tried Re-installing it to no avail.
I just ran "mysqld" manually in the terminal, but now I can't quit it and go back to bash. I've tried CTRL+C and typing "reset", but neither do anything. Anything I type is just ignored. I've had this numerous times in the past with various operating systems and in various scenario's, hence why I'm seeking the solution. Is there some universal hotkey to quit the currently running application or something? I guess I'm looking for a way to send SIGQUIT, SIGTERM or possibly even a EOF signal?
I need to close my session but the exit button is no longer here. I can restart the computer (ctrl+alt_del), but not only the session. I opened a session with the gnome desktop but everytime is messed up and I want to come back to the UNE desktop. How can I do that from a terminal?
first time KDE and OpenSUSE user here, went from BSD to Windows now here with you, and I have a small problem. This is pretty much a fresh install, and KDE will sometimes become unresponsive and the computer will disconnect USB devices (mouse keyboard). Although I can still use the trackpad and keyboard on the laptop, no shortcuts work, I cannot kill process, open the terminal, or anything else, and can only reboot the compute via power switch.
I was told by an experienced Ubuntu user to try to replicate the error on demand and post the logs. The problem is, I can't. It will happen pretty randomly, sometimes when watching flash, or sometimes downloading from Yast2. I did take my last logs from a recent crash though and have the pastbin Jan 3 19:54:02 linux-yiyn su: (to root) kris on / - Linux logfile Also as a side note, although running on older hardware, OpenSUSE never seems to utilize more then 7% CPU (1.5Ghz single core) and 130Mb RAM (2Gb DDR). I am told this is unlike linux systems, that they usually idle high.
I've decided to format my netbook entirely and just run NBR. I still need a windows install because a lot of stuff still doesn't work correctly in wine.
will running a virtual windows install kill mu netbooks battery life quickly or is it the same as running any other program? also what's a good virtual OS program? I think the only one I know of it vmware or something?
First, the network manager would show up on my girlfriend's profile (hers was the first one we created) but it won't show up on mine and it would not detect any internet connections. I found another thread that told me to type "nm-applet &" into the terminal, which works great. It shows the network manager and auto connects. But as soon as I close the terminal, it auto disconnects. Anyone know why and what I can do to make the network manager icon stay besides keeping the terminal open?
I just upgraded to 11.04When I create environment variables such as:export FG_SCENERY=/home/justin/.fgfs/scenery:/home/justin/FG_SCENERYThey remain until I close terminal. These custom variables appear under printenv unless I close terminal. Programs act like these variables do not exist if I have closed terminal, but are able to use them if I haven't.

i googled around and finally stumbled over this forum. I've been wondering, how would i kill an process running from an folder and with user parameter? I usually type this into the ssh console: pkill -9 < process > -U < username >
But i want users be able to run it multiple times, and killing only an specific process and not every single one.

I would like to hear about a (telnet) terminal for Linux that can run VB scripts. The need is for configuration of a target board. I like secureCRT very much, but I can not use it from a Linux workstation.
Today I run OpenOffice.org extensions update and it freezed fter showing me that everything was successful.When i xkilled it it refused tolaunch without any problem indication.killall soffice.bin didn't report "No process found" after 1,2,3...20 times.So I tried killall soffice.bin -i
the process is mcelog. When I do as root kill -9 2323 which is pid of mcelog the process is not killed. I tried doing the same from top, press K and enter pid of mcelog. doing ps auwx | grep mcelog I see there are several results. I tried killing all of them like kill -9 2355 2341 3425 2345. But re-running the above commands still shows them as running. How else would I troubleshoot this to avoid restarting of the box.
