'Task Manager' in linux


Recommended Posts

XST1

I'm sort of new to linux, but i just installed SuSE, and installed RealVNC. I started the RealVNC sever and now have two instances of it running on my computer. Is there a task manager like we have in windows which displays the current processes running which allows me to kill them so i can shutdown this RealVNC server? Thanks.

Gnome has one, KDE has one, and there's also ps, which is a terminal program. Type ps aux and it'll give you a full listing.

Then type kill followed by the process-id to stop it.

in a terminal window

killall *vnc*

you might need to be root though

you probably should use ps -Al to show you all the process on system ( if your root)

otherwise you're going to have only the ones started by your user

ill assume that kills everything that contains the word vnc. Thanks guys.

i also have one more question, and i thought id ask it without creating another topic:

i was in shell and used su to install some files in /usr/local/bin.

When i go to open that directory in konqueror, it says access denied.. im assuming this is because im not a super user like i was when i did all this in terminal mode.

Is there a way to edit/view files in Konqueror in su mode without logging out and logging back in as administrator?

Type in:

top

at the terminal to see a list of processes. You can also kill them from there.

In KDE.

In the K-menu under System/ File Manager/ File Manager - Super User Mode.
