When a app. freezes how do you kill it?
Drop into terminal, ps x and then kill the PID (or whatever the number is )
kill -hup `pidof appname`
xkill cmd should give the ability to click on the offending app too
You can get ctrl +alt + Backspace back by going into system/prefs/keyboard/options
So Xkill will just kill the app, if I click the frozen window?? Did the cntrl-alt-backspace a few ago when it froze, it killed it, just didn't come back & let me log on again.
Separate names with a comma.
