Killing Another X Server
I usually start few Wine games, which have problems with fullscreen and minimizing on a separate X server. This also allows me to run Compiz on the main X, without affecting the performance of the game.
However, when closing the game on the X server, I'm left with the X cursor on a black screen and this X seems to continue to run. How could I terminate it? I'm using of the X :n, but is there any more "humane" way to do that?
Thanks in advance.
I'm doing likewise whenever I start additional X servers. It's not that inhumane to do this, as the signal you send is "TERM", not "SIGKILL". This is basically a request to the program to finish please. It is not forced.
Therefore you don't have to feel bad about it ;)
Actually it seems that startx does kill the server after the last running application is closed, compared to .
