I'm happily using spectrwm and looking for a way to "click the X", to close a window and kill the process.

MOD+W just make the window disappear, the process keeps running.

Edit: That's intended behavior because MOD+W is for "iconify".

How can I stop programs that don't offer the infamous File->Exit or some similar way of closing them without kill?


"Mod + X" by default. Meaning if you haven't configured your keyboard shortcuts to something else.

  • well, that's embarrasing that I didn't find it myself / got something wrong with my question. I guess that I was pressing Mod + W the whole time... – Jasper Apr 14 '18 at 16:38
