I have just migrated from Ubuntu 10.04 to 12.04. As most of the UI elements have been changed I don't know to add Force quit icon, which is needed for most of the not responding applications. So, how to add force quit icon in ubuntu 12.04?
In the terminal, run these commands:
cat > ~/.local/share/applications/Force_Quit.desktop <<EOF [Desktop Entry] Name=Force Quit Comment=Force Kill an Unresponsive Running Application or Window Exec=xkill Icon=gnome-panel-force-quit Terminal=false Type=Application StartupNotify=true EOF
- Now in the window that popped up, drag
Force_Quit.desktopto the Unity launcher.
xkill will now be invoked every time you click on the new launcher icon.
