    Default how to kill...?

    My sister and I are using computer with openSuSE 10.3. And she left on her account Firefox with some game with some stupid music and locked screen and left home. Now I want to play music in Amarok but that music on her account is killing my music

    How to shut her Firefox? She dont want to give me her password?

    Plzzz, can I do it somehow without restarting the computer?

    Do you have root permissions?

    If so, then from the command line:

    killall firefox-bin

    Note, this should kill all instances of firefox on the system. If it
    doesn't work, then add '-9' to 'killall':

    killall -9 firefox-bin

    That means kill it and kill it good. :]

    You can simply hit ctrl+alt+backspace, which should kill the current X session

    KSysguard also works, and so does:

    ps -ef | grep firefox
    kill PID

    (replace PID with the PID/process number that ps returns)

    I'm a fan of Ctrl+Alt+Bksp but it doesn't seem to work on openSUSE 11. I just get a beep.

    I get the beep aswell. I find holding it down/repeating works though.

    I think I like this change. I keep bumping the lousy set of keys on
    accident from time to time and losing data. Having it "make sure" I
    want to kill X seems like a good improvement as long as it was intended.

    Good luck.

    This is specifically mentioned in the openSUSE-11.0 release note:
