    Task Manager


    In Windows you could access the Task Manager by hitting Ctrl+Alt+Del. Is there a similar program in Mandriva 2006 and how do you get to it?

    look for Ksysguard under the System menu of the KMenu.

    if you want a command line version, take a look at top, i.e just execute "top" (without quotes) in the terminal.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    KDE has a task (process) manager. Hit CTRL+ESC to bring it up. You can kill tasks that you launched, or of you are logged in as root you can kill whatever you want.

    I have been using Linux for a 1.5 years, and I have never seen this before.
    That is one of the great things about Linux, there is just so much more to learn.
