Flamesage,

Guest Too made an excellent template for making a dotpup, which is available as a dotpup. I recommend starting with that. You will need to know a little about ash or bash scripting, and beyond that just follow the directions that he provides. If you want to give it a try but have any questions, I'm sure someone here could help you.

G2, thanks for all the cool work you do.

Xkill works great. I opted for the keyboard shortcut to run it.

I tried to kill an app in the taskbar and it killed X. Very effective, but probably you should click on the window as opposed to the taskbar icon. Smile

a dotpup is pretty simple anyway ... it's just a zip file with your files in it ... put an executable file in it called dotpup.sh, and it will be run automatically when the dotpup is clicked
