can't shut down K3b

Asked by elkhelper on 2007-12-17

I burned a data dvd and it just quit in the middle of the operation. The files are on the dvd but I can't close K3b. How do you shut the program down from the terminal? I cleared all of the projects but it still won't shutdown. I tried to restart my system but K3b won't let the system shut down???? Thanks in advance for the help!!

To force reboot of your system.
Please open a Terminal from the menu Applications->Accessories->Terminal and type:

sudo reboot

give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter.

To kill running K3B process, identify it, type:

sudo ps aux | grep -i k3b

and then kill the process id number of running k3b for example "23455"

sudo kill -9 23455

Hope this help

Thanks man!!! I was able to shut down the process. Being a newbie to Linux, and not that computer savvy, it has been a real challenge. I was so sick of Windows I had to do something; so here I am.

Thanks again for the help!
