How to close the application

Asked by Mildred on 2009-07-28

When I start Wikipedia Dump Reader, the close button is disabled in the window manager (metacity).
There is a "X" button and a "close" button but none of them close the application
Ctrl-C in the terminal doesn't stop the application.
But the kill command closes it.

Is there a better way to close the application than to kill it (TERM signal I believe)

Thanks.

You can use the system monitor to kill the process, stop or end it.....

I suppose I can, or I can use xkill.

I was wondering if I was missing something, since that seems more of a defect than something normal, should I open a bug?
