I tried to shut down the service using the terminal/konsole:
ps -e | grep frostwireNo luck. But if you do
ps -eyou notice something. Ah, that's right, Frostwire uses JRE and looks like "Java", so that must be it.
kill ProcessIdOfTheJavaThingyDoes not kill the process. Nothing happens. (Replace ProcessIdOfTheJavaThingy with the number beside the program you want to kill). For fun, I tried:
sudo kill ProcessIdOfTheJavaThingyThat doesn't work either. Well, I guess I'll actually Google it or something.
This is not a bug (though that may be a matter of opinion...); it's a feature. Frostwire will not shutdown if there are items still waiting to finish. To fix this lovely feature, go into the Frostwire menus:
ToolsWell, that was easy.
System Tray (on the left)
Select Shutdown Immediately
UPDATE: easily kill a process that has a window - use a weird combination of both graphical and command line to kill a window! In your terminal, type
xkilland then the system will prompt you to click on the window you want to kill. Great method for those of you who don't want to remember ps options and pipes.
Or... kill a process by name (say... "amarok") using pkill.
pkill amarokGreat link here about that.
