Where Is My Ctrl+Alt+Backspace?


I’ve recently installed 9.04 ( Jackalope) on my Thinkpad, and guess what, according to the article at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/DontZap people decided to disable the Ctrl + Alt + Backspace combination, which kills the X instantly.

Ok, there is a logic behind the idea, but what about giving user the freedom of choice?

Long story short, you can re-enable the beloved key combination, just edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and add the following lines:

Section "ServerFlags"
	Option "DontZap" "False"
EndSection
