The term window becomes the console. You should NOT start View
in the background, or your shell might not give View control over
the term window once you switch to console. If you did start View
in the background then type "fg" into your term window to switch it
to the foreground. (All assuming you are using a shell with job
control, like bash).

A normal kill should do. No need for the brutal -9. Alternatively
Ctrl-C should do as well, provided that View is the foreground
