Ubuntu – How to kill applications


I have been playing around with Ubuntu installing new themes and and docks. Sometimes during the installation, whole screen just hangs. What is the best way in Ubuntu to Kill a process/application? Anything similar to Ctrl + Alt + Del of windows?

Best Answer

In System->Admin you have an application called System Monitor, this is the equivalent of the windows task manager.

Edit: for later versions of Ubuntu (writing this on a PC running 13.10), you will find the system monitor through the dash (top left). Just type system monitor or parts of it in the dash and look for the System Monitor application..
