1 Hi,
2 My wife ran into a problem this evening that required I do a
3 reboot. She runs Gnome. Sometimes something about her setup goes
4 haywire and she loses all her desktop icons and her wallpaper. In the
5 past I've found that if we log her out and then in the console kill
6 all processes left running with her account as the owner that she can
7 then log back in and use Gnome correctly.
9 This evening one of these processes was unkillable. I tried
11 kill -15 PID
12 kill -9 PID
13 killall -9 process_name
15 but none worked. To make forward progress I just rebooted.
17 Is there some other way I could have tried killing this process?
19 Thanks,
20 Mark
