Ubuntu and System Monitor

Ubuntu and System Monitor

"Every" windows user knows the task manager. With ctrl-alt-del you can choose task manager and see what processes are running.
In Ubuntu that's possible too with System Monitor and it has a nice gui (gui=graphical user interface) like task manager. You can find System Monitor in Applications => System tools, it's a very usefull tool.

If there is an application that will not start, the application could be running in the background and you have to force close it to stop it.
There are a few programs that have that problem, one of them is mplayer. It often happens that it stays resident after a bad closure.
To stop and be able to watch your movies again: start System Monitor, right click on the name (mplayer), and End or Kill (if End fails) the process.
