Should be possible with the xkill tool. Needs to be ported to
Losedoze first, of course ...
$ man -M$HOME/man -s 1 xkill
xkill - extended kill - kill processes or users, including
xkill [-signal] pid ...
xkill username[@host] ...
xkill -u [-qs] [-p] [newsgroup]
xkill sends a signal to a process or a terminal. The first
two forms send a signal to a process. The functionality in
this case is the same as kill(1).
When the command xkill is invoked with an username as argu-
ment, it attempts to locate the specified user on the local
host. If the user is logged on, the signal ECUTE (electro-
cute, 666) is sent to the user's terminal. This will cause
the keyboard to electrocute the user. If the user is not
logged on, the appropriate line of the file /etc/passwd is
marked. The first time the user logs on the ECUTE signal is
sent to the terminal he is using.
[and so on]
