    hi!

    there is a program, named Xkill, which can help you... you might also use the taskmanager of kde, I dunno its name (using winblows now, just screwed up my linux installation )
    look for xkill, or type it in console (which might work also)!

    grtz

    1. Open a shell

    2. Type: "ps aux |grep name_of_program"

    3. Look at the pid which is returned and then type: "kill pid_of _program" or if that doesn't work "kill -9 pid_of_program"
