Fedora 33 still and have an issue.

My plasmashell crashed.  It isn't running and I have my open apps and a
black background.  Right click does nothing and there is no menu bar.

the running tty or is there a clean way to close off the account from a
different terminal?

I cannot just shut the computer down as there are some very long
processes running in a different account.

Just before the crash, plasmashell was running at 100% on a core.

A couple of years ago Rex posted this:

kquitapp5 plasmashell
killall plasmashell
/usr/bin/plasmashell &

I've used it in the past (plasmashell used to crash quite frequently
for me) but not recently.


I have that for restarting a plasmashell when it acts up. In this case, it is already dead.

I am logged in on tty2 and can get a shell on tty3. No need to kill plasmashell since it is already dead though.

Didn't work from a different tty. No way to open a terminal in the present session.

Will have to kill my present session and login again.
