My LibreOffice suite (especially Writer) freezes - how to kill it gracefully on terminal

Recommended Posts

dear community,

i  am using Manjaro  64 bit with kernel 4.14.68-1-Manjaro
and KDE-Plasma-Version 5.13.5 and
KDE-Frameworks Version 5.49
and Qt-Version 5.11.1

ona 2 x InteU B960 with
3.7 GB Ram

My LibreOffice suite (especially Writer) freezes.

How can I kill LibreOffice and Can I kill only the writer? (not the Calc,Impress,..)
I tried to search for the executable process at System Monitor and command line (ps) but didn't find it.

EDIT: I want something like this:

pkill -xy writer

I need some kind of minified command.

    so i runned this command:

[martin@martin-pc ~]$ ps aux | grep libre

[martin@martin-pc ~]$




but what should i do then

sudo kill -xy ID

the ID is the second number for (soffice.bin) not for oosplash

see some example here  https://askubuntu.com/questions/433171/how-to-kill-libreoffice-from-command-line/433179


sudo kill -9 21445

You need professional Ok:

ps aux | grep -i office | awk {'print $2'} | xargs kill -9

hope this is professional in your evaluation!!

or more minified command

kill -9 `pgrep -lf soffice.bin | awk {'print $1'}`

or more minified minified minified command

pkill soffice.bin

please advice - what should i do
what could i do!?

Should i try to update / upgrade the libreoffice!?

Loook forward to hear from you !

Run the following command
sudo kill 812
sudo kill 818
sudo kill 823
and close LibreOffice. You can also kill the others whether LibreOffice does not close.

btw, if i close the system and shutdown the whole machine - i think i am rid of the issue - then it is cloesd.

Should i try to update / upgrade the libreoffice!?
This is the first thing that immediately leapt to my mind.

how to do that - can i do this via command-line!?
