Ctrl+Alt+Esc

Long time with KDE, I am used to  the Ctrl+Alt+Esc sequence, which produces a skull at the mouse cursor position to kill an application on the desktop.

Is there a possibility for having that functionality under Xfce? That is one thing, I am missing ....

Re: Ctrl+Alt+Esc

You can use "xkill" or "wmctrl -c :SELECT:". xkill seems to kill all windows with the same process name whereas wmctrl is a little more selective. Just go to Settings Manager > Keyboard > Application Shortcuts and create a shortcut for Ctrl+Alt+Esc for one of those two commands.

As for the skull icon, I haven't seen that years. Now sure how you can get that back or configure it.

Re: Ctrl+Alt+Esc

I have a launcher on my panel for xkill.  Much more convenient than a desktop icon or needing to open a terminal.  Just click on the launcher, and your cursor turns into an X; click on the offending window, and it's gone.  And, if you click on it by mistake, right-click gets rid of it safely.

Re: Ctrl+Alt+Esc

Thank you, for having a look.

This now is my first post here out of DEBIAN Stretch Xfce ;-)

Still switching between PCLinuxOS with KDE 4 and DEBIAN Stretch Xfce.

500 GB hdd with PClos and SSD + 1 TB hdd with DEBIAN and a electrical switch in 5/12V power supply for set 1 and 2.

Naturally has to be switched with PC OFF! Works fine ....

This transition to Xfce has to be done, as PCLinuxOS is concentration on KDE 5 and Mate. And I am not going the KDE 5 way!!!!

According to Google (after I convinced it that I wasn't misspelling "xkill") and its search results summary texts, it appears to be a command for terminating specified file transfers.

Re: Ctrl+Alt+Esc

Openzone Black mouse theme ships with it.

Been a long time with KDE and I was used to have that on my desktop. Now it is there with Xfce ;-)
