What game?

Can you Alt+Tab out of it?
If not, press Ctrl+Alt+F1. You should see a console. Log in and end the game using htop of top.

@Bitcrusher: The name of the process is FTL, not ftl, and you don't have to kill it with SIGKILL, SIGTERM is enough:

pkill -TERM FTL


killall FTL


kill -TERM $(pidof FTL)

you don't need the -TERM as thats the default

I got the same problem.
I could also "solve it" by killing the FTL process... but it's hardly a clean solution.
Any other fix in sight? Or an explanation for why the FTL process stays hanging (and using ~60% CPU) after quitting it?

ps x | grep FTL
kill -9 (pid of FTL process)

This is fixed by disabling steam community in-game.
