Yes, there is a gui. If installed, you can start it with gnome-system-monitor If not installed, you can either search in the Software Center for System monitor oder in terminal sudo apt-get install gnome-system-monitor Hope this helps. Or, to make it a bit easier, just open the dash and type System Monitor.

You can switch to another tty by pressing Ctrl-Alt-F2, then type command top to find out which process used too much your CPU or Memory or I/O, then kill it if you want your system be responsing.

You could also try ALT + F4 to close a running application in foreground. Another possibility would be to use Ctrl + ALT + F4 You have to login there with your user account.

This is my "linux emergency cheat sheet": 1. Non responsive application SUPER --> type in System Monitor --> RETURN --> find process --> right click --> Kill Process or ALT + F2 --> type in xkill --> x marks the spot (or in this case frozen app) or CTRL + ALT + T --> type in top --> find process ID --> k PID where PID = process ID Effect: This kills ...

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.

To setup tasks to run on login, use gnome-session-properties. This means you can add programs to run when you login to user account on your machine. You can configure it like this - just add the command you want to run in the command box: Very long answer on that here To get things to run when the computer boots, use rc.local: You can edit it with sudo ...

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

Scheduled tasks It is the Task Scheduler in Gnome. In other way it is a GUI for Cron. Can be installed with Software Center. If use Terminal for installation: sudo apt-get install gnome-schedule

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. This means that when an application has frozen, you can use the System Monitor to close it without using a lot of system resources which could cause your whole ...

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.

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? ...

deckoff hinted at this in his answer, and I've been trying it out myself for a bit now. So I should probably add it here. There is a GTasks indicator available in a third party PPA, google-tasks-indicator. You can add the PPA and install the app with: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ...

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.

I think that not all of those are processes, but are rather threads. You tried killall -15 google-chrome chrome? That should kill all google-chrome processes and threads with a SIGTERM signal. If that doesnt work, you can always try killall -9 google-chrome chrome (HIGHLY NOT ADVISED Unless you ABSOLUTELY need to kill the processes without them saving ...

I will simply go with Gtask chrome app for desktop and Gtasks in Android (though many different will do). Best way to do anything on Android is to do it via Google services -IMHO. If you still insist on desktop app, not in-browser app, look here , here, or here

Hands down Producteev It supports the sharing your looking for, and has a windows, web, and mac, version. The web verison (in conjunction with the unity web app stuff) works exceptionally well.

Looks like Nitro is built on top of the web-technologies like Javascript and CSS. On examining the file present in /opt/nitro/share/pyshared/nitrotasks NitroTasksWindow.py which imports web-browser, pickle modules and so the data might be stored as a pkl format or else it could be stored as a cookie which is accessible only via the Nitro App it seems. ...
