View Full Version : [SOLVED] Terminal commands

October 14th, 2010, 04:07 PM
I just had java go crazy on me and i was trying to kill google chrome. I couldn't use my moues but I was able to open terminal. However, i couldn't remember what the command for chrome was so that i could kill it. Is there an easier way to find the command for programs or is it all a memory game?

you could run

ps ax
to give you a list of running programs and their ID numbers and kill the chrome process using its id....for example

kill 12345
(obviously replace the number with the one associated with chrome from ps ax
