This kills all processes for a user session and deallocates the resources.
First list the sessions and obtain the session ID.
$ loginctl list-sessions SESSION UID USER SEAT TTY 2 1000 training seat0 tty2 5 1000 training c1 42 gdm seat0 tty1 3 sessions listed.
terminate-session ID... Terminates a session. This kills all processes of the session and deallocates all resources attached to the session.
kill-session ID... Send a signal to one or more processes of the session. Use --kill-who= to select which process to kill. Use --signal= to select the signal to send.
Terminate a user session.
$ loginctl terminate-session 5
