Thanks for the reply

Next - what, exactly, is the error. And what, exactly are the full contents of the Tasker task.

And, just to confirm things, what's the output of the following commands:
type pgrep
type kill
ls -l $(which pgrep)
ls -l $(which kill)

The problem is that with BusyBox from the playstore installed, the identical task runs fine. Executes as expected, kills the app. Uninstall it, I get an error. Installed Magisk Module, I get an error. The task is super simple, attached to a nav gesture

1) App Info (returns %app_package variable)
2) Run shell kill -9 `pgrep %app_package`

I also tried it with an actual package name instead of a variable, but same problem, here is the result with the returned variable

The error is:
21.24.27/Variables doreplresult: |kill -9 `pgrep %app_package`| -> |kill -9 `pgrep`|

Appreciate any help
