  • I use this command, within a cron job, to kill XMMS after a certain amount of time. This command returns the PID used by XMMS, and gets passed to the kill command. Another alternative would be ps aux | grep xmms | grep -v grep | awk '{ print $2 }' | xargs kill


    -2
    kill `ps aux | grep xmms | grep -v grep | awk '{ print $2 }'`
