If I begin a process and background it in a terminal window (say
ping google.com &), I can kill it using
kill %1 (assuming it is job 1).
However if I open another terminal window (or tab) the backgrounded process is not listed under
jobs and cannot be killed directly using
Is it possible to kill this process from another terminal window or tab?
Note: I am using the Xfce Terminal Emulator 0.4.3 and bash (although if a solution exists in another common shell but not bash I am open to that as well)
