I don't use emulators on Linux but in windows I forcibly kill the emulator process (because some emulators use alt f4, some ESC etc), so something like
killall -9 emulator_name
I have one entry for each emulator I use in a script that's mapped to a remote button. Only thing is that any config changes arent saved, so when you're configuring the emulator you need to exit it properly.

Yeah! Finally I wrote this script that works PERFECTLY!!!!
First of all follow this instructions for Kodibuntu (I don't apply the PulseAudio because I use ALSA for all): http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=...pid1919154
Then put the following in a terminal:
sudo nano $HOME/.config/openbox/start.sh
And paste this code:
Save it (CTRL+X and then ENTER) and now in a terminal again put:
sudo nano $HOME/.config/openbox/autostart.sh
change the line /usr/bin/kodi & with /home/YOURUSERNAME/.config/openbox/start.sh & ; save it and restart.
EDIT: I wrote it with 3 variables (Kodi, Firefox and Steam). If you don't use Firefox, please, use this script instead the previous:
Make executable the script with sudo chmod +x $HOME/.config/openbox/start.sh
HOW WORKS THE SCRIPT?
Ok. The complete script (3 variables) works like:
- If Kodi is running, nothing happens.
- If Kodi isn't running BUT Steam yes, nothing happens (With Steam launcher and the "quit kodi" option enabled, only Steam is runnning).
- If Kodi isn't running, Steam isn't running BUT Firefox yes, nothing happens (you only have running Firefox).
- If Kodi isn't running, Steam isn't running and Firefox isn't running, Kodi starts again (very useful for ocasionally Kodi crashes).
EDIT2: For launch Firefox or another browser I use this script with Executor (or Advanced Launcher):

I didn't know I could map commands to irexec. Nice. The emulation is also being streamed, so I can't kill the emulator directly. Alt-F4 works in steam (meaning it kills steam), but not while the emulator is active (seemingly only F4 gets accepted. Alt-F4 works when I use my keyboard, but not when using irexec (again, it does work while steam is active). I'm going to try steam -shutdown, although that will keep anything running on my game pc upstairs running, so it's not perfect.

Is there a way to launch steam big picture mode directly into game library view? (Windows 8.1) That would be awesome
