Force quit applet?

Is there a 'force-quit' app for Fedora anywhere like found in ubuntu when a application misbehaves and the system locks up? You use it to kill the app without having to soft-reboot the system to get the system functioning again.

Re: Force quit applet?

are you running F15 or F16?

If so,hit

in the box, enter xkill hit enter

Then click the window you wish to kill
If you are running F14 there is a gnome applet for a force kill option, I forget the name of it now, though. It's in the fedora repo.
