Ctrl+Alt+Backspace

21, February 2010
Ctrl+Alt+Backspace (i.e. the shortcut which was used to restart the X server) has to be enabled in a different way with respect to previous releases of Ubuntu.

This is due to the fact that “DontZap” is no longer an option in the X server and has become an option in XKB instead.

Using GNOME

Goto [System], [Preferences], [Keyboard], select the [Layouts] tab and click on the [Layout Options…] button. Select the [Key sequence to kill the X server] option and enable “Control + Alt + Backspace” by ticking the box, then select [Close] and your done.
