comment Kill nohup command on cluster
I use $ps -ef all the time. For me it shows all process (even not owned by me) on linux hosts. Does it help for you ? Get the pid and kill it.

Doesn't alt+f4 work for you ? For me it does the same thing as clicking x on window. I am not sure if it sends sigterm signal. I suspect it does that.
