Questions about applications and software
Before you post please read this
I migrated from Xandros Linux to Elissa 5 this week. So far I like it, although I had a problem with playing my music until I rebooted and then everything worked well. One thing I miss though is the Kill application for programs that freeze up. It doesnt seem to be included. Could someone please tell me the program I need to download and install to get this functionality back. Thanks in advance.
There is a version for the GNOME panel called force quit. Right click on the panel and choose "Add to panel"--then choose "force quit" and it will add an icon to your panel.
Just click the icon then click the application that you want to kill.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.

thank you very much for your incredibly quick reply. You are awesome.
Also there's ctrl+Alt+Esc, then click on the application you want to kill. Another one: open a terminal, type xkill and Enter, then click on the app you want to kill.
