    You can get the pid from ps then use kill <pid> to kill it.

    Or
    Code:
    kill -KILL `pidof mozilla-bin`
    Anyway, if you'd like a more user-friendly solution, there is always the System Monitor for GNOME and the System Guard for KDE>

    CTRL+ALT+ESC

    Isn't it: "Kill -f" or is "-KILL" even more persuative? (Don't rember seeing it in the list of switches to kill)

    well in SuSE 8.0 and 8.2 Pro

    when you are in an X server or maybe just KDE and you press CTRL+ALT+ESC

    it brings up a skull and bones cursor

    the aplication you speak of is "xkill" run it from command line and click the window as you say mdevilz.
    I use 'ps aux' and kill the pid of whatever it is thats crashed normaly.

    You can kill a program in a bounch of ways... both kill the PID and ctrl + alt + esc workes.
