I would like to restart the
gtk-window-decorator process, because it takes up 600MB memory. Will that affect other processes? From my experiences, after killing it, all other programs will lose their window frames, but after I run it again, the other programs will have their window frames back, and the
gtk-window-decorator process will take much less memory.
If I rerun it in a shell session in background, I will kill it if I forget about it and accidentally close the shell session. How can I run it like the OS does?
I am running Ubuntu 12.04. Thanks.
