Is force-quit in Fedora 14, and if so how do I access it?
Found Xkill

there is... One way you can get it is to go to your taskbar at the top of your screen (if running gnome)...

right click on the taskbar and select "add to panel"
in the box that comes up, type "force quit"... The force quit application will show in the list.. select it, and click the "add" button.

If you have a misbehaving application, then you can click the force quit icon in your taskbar, then click on the window of the application you want to kill.

Doesn't just closing the misbehaving application using the "close" button in the window frame invoke the "Force quit" dialogue in GNOME?

I believe closing it using the close "X" button invokes the regular close, and after awhile if it doesn't close normally, it invokes the force-quit and pops up with the option to either wait or force-quit. I guess if you know that you are going to have to force-quit something, then it would be a little faster if you invoked force-quit instead of waiting for the regular close to time-out.

Personally, I wouldn't use force-quit unless I just absolutely had to.

Thanks. I am using Xfce so that doesn't work. I found "kill" ,however. I had a bad acting program and was tired of waiting.
