    Two ways:

    If you're using KDE then hit Control + Alt + Escape. Your mouse cursor will change, click on the window that's fugging up to kill it.

    Second, open a terminal/konsole/whatever and type "ps ax" Find the program you want to kill, and type "kill <program number>"

    Kill the process. Open an xterm, type
    Code:
    $ ps ax
    Find the process ID if the program you want to kill, and then simply cast the spell:
    Code:
    $ kill 123
    Assuming 123 is the process ID.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Code:
    [grimoire@localhost]top
    find the process say xmms
    killall -9 xmms

    If it is a console program their is a shortcut usually Ctrl+c

    skill -9 netscape

    "-9" may be needed if it doesn't stop without it
