The default task manager in Ubuntu is called System Monitor. System Monitor is a very good task manager that, compared to Task Manager in Windows, uses much less system resources when it is running.

As you have not specified your Desktop environment I will assume you are using Using Ubuntu For a graphical way to check your cpu usage, search your system for an application called System monitor. The Resources tab will show activity of each core Whilst the Processes tab will show cpu usage for individual programmes.

The best way I find is using terminal window : goto terminal : sudo ps -aux | grep "name of application" note down the process ID sudo kill -9 "processID" since, If GUI application becomes unresponsive, for time-being it slows down the X(GUI) and all actions would be slowed down, so any gui action for closing the process will be slow.

You can do a number of things : Search for the System Monitor in the Dash, de facto that's your task manager.

You are looking for anacron function. http://linux.about.com/library/cmd/blcmdl8_anacron.htm

Yes, this is quite possible. On my Lubuntu system, the gnome-system-monitor package is not even installed. This is not an "essential" package, even on a Gnome/Unity system, and removing it should have no harmful effects at all. It should not affect any other Gnome software you may run on LXDE, such as the Nautilus file manager.

Maybe Tine 2.0 is an option, it has a very good calendar and task module. Horde Groupware can be good as well. If you need project management, PHProjekt may be worth a look.

You may be better off with popular web-based task or issue tracking solution such as redmine or trac instead of a desktop application. Just a thought.

Redmine (as posted by rob) might be better suited to your question (it uses mail) also have a look at gantproject and see if that is what you are looking for.

What can it do? ...
