How inexperienced user can restart frozen app in Unity?

Asked by Rumcajz Rozbojnik on 2012-12-23

Unity switches to already launched applications instead running new instance. When app (firefox) stops responding and does not show up, Unity tells user that it needs to be closed.

How an inexperienced user would know how do that in Unity (without terminal preferrably)?

Search for system monitor in the dash, launch it and switch to the processes tab. Select the app you wish to kill and click end process.

Hi ,

you can open a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and write one simple command

$ killall firefox

Thanks

Thanks samuel, that solved my question.
