Ubuntu – How to stop the ‘Free the Fish’ Easter Egg


I did 'apt-get install free the fish' to see what the Ubuntu 'Wanda the Fish' Easter Egg looks like. I have now had enough of the fish and want it to stop, which I could do by logging in and out.

Unfortunately I have a few other things open right now and I don't want to do that. I tried ps -ef | more to see if I could identify the process, but I could not. Also the Google came up with no answers. Anyone have any ideas?

Press Alt + F2 then paste pkill gnome-panel and your panel will disappear and reappear but the fish will be gone.
