Occasionally the GroupWise cross-platform client will hang on Novell Linux Desktop. If that happens to you, try this little script to kill it nicely.

SOLUTION:

My GroupWise client on the Novell Linux Desktop sometimes hangs - so I made a dirty little script to kill it. (Should be two lines of text in total for the script.)

 #!/bin/sh
  ps ax|grep [b]in/groupwise|grep -v .sh|xargs --max-args=1|sed 1q|xargs kill 
  -9

Paste this into a text file - say gwkill.sh; make it executable chmod +x gwkill.sh; maybe make a launcher shortcut on your toolbar.

Did this work for you?
