Yesterday i was fed up :(,when i had closed vlc (video lan Player)on my linux ,but it still running in System Process…. and i don’t have any other way instead of logging off or shutting down and restart.
A lots of people likes to do kill -9, which means kill a process by force. By specified -9, process will be terminated by force, which is very fast and confirm kill but it leaves hidden side effects. Refers to Useless use of kill -9, kill a process by specified -9 may leave child processes of a parent orphaned, temporary files open, shared memory segments active, and sockets busy. This leaves the system in a messy state, and could lead to unanticipated and hard to debug problems.Application->System Tools->Terminal :
in the Terminal Type :
[puneet@localhost ~]$pkill vlc
It Solved my another Problem ,my vlc Becomes quite Understanding ,it exits whenever Commands :).
Definition: pkill: look up or signal processes based on name and other attributes.
