Love your Linux, Feel at Home, Get things Done!
An applet which calls xkill when you click on it (so you can force quit any unresponsive window).
how does one install these things really?
Download it and decompress it in ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets.
yeah thats what i did, however the result of that is that the applets list in cinnamon-settings is blank. see screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/V8sDD.png
removing the force-quit folder from ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets and the other applets (trash etc) are visible again
Ok, I re-uploaded it using tar.gz... maybe the zip made the files have the wrong permissions.
I had the same problem.
Solved after this fix
Same problem here Clem, if I place in ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets suddenly I have no applets.
Did anyone get this applet to work yet?
If you did could you share what you did exactly?
Thanks in advance.
Ok, I changed the icon name to something most icon themes have.... it should work for you now.
It works and I thank you. :)
yep works now, thanks :)
It works, yes, but i want to make a bulgarian translation. Created a structure:
/usr/share/cinnamon/locale/bg/LC_MESSAGES/cinnamon-applets/ and put the force-quit.mo in there, but no change, trying and
/usr/share/cinnamon/locale/bg/LC_MESSAGESemail@example.com/applet.mo, and still no translation.
Here is the po file:

Clem or some one who know, help me please! Is this a right file? If not, have a pot file somewhere? What must to be the mo file's name and must it be in own folder?
Please, don't send me to translators team, i asked them, they don't know...
Don't answer me, i make it! :)
Hi spacy.. I'm not sure actually. There's a few things we need to improve for applets in Cinnamon (compilation of settings, dependencies and localization in particular). I'll look into it and we'll try to improve this in the coming releases. It's important applets can be localized and provide their own translations. Can't tell you how long it will take but we'll definitely get this better supported in the future.
Great applet, except for the icon. I really prefer the icons to be all symbolic ones for a nice, clean, unified look. So I changed it to "window-close".
Since you are a dev, can you tell me where one can view all the symbolic icons? It took me a lot of experimentation and guesswork to find something that worked.
Have just changed to Cinnamon and I'm happy to found 'xkill' too.
I'm using gnome-theme and the icon is difficult to detect
First I searched for it because it has a dark color.
But then everything was good :-))
