    You might be able to do it in the console by running this command:

    Code:
    top
    Look for the process you want to kill, and type
    Code:
    k****
    Replace the "****" with the pid of the process. Press "q" to quit after.

    Console/terminal based approach

    open a gnome terminal/konsole or whatever terminal emulator you use and
    list all processes using the command
    Code:
    ps -A
    Then you can issue a killall command after identifying name of you need
    to terminate. Here i have used the application "parcellite"
    Code:
    killall parcellite
    (OR)

    GUI based approach

    If you have desktop like GNOME you can open process monitors like
    gnome-system-monitor and terminate processes using those applications

    Run

    ps -A

    to list processes, determine the PID of the process to kill then

    kill PID

    will kill the PID process

    GUI method depend on the GUI used

    in KDE run ksysguard right click process to kill select end process or press del key to kill it

    Note depending on the process owner you may need to be root to kill a given process

    Which app and who owns it?

    It does not work even if you are root??

    If so it is a zombie. There are methods to deal with that but i has been a long tome since I had to deal with a zombie

    try as root kill -9 PID

    Zombies can be very hard to kill so sometime a reboot may be the only way to destroy them
